This month has been going all right, and half way through. I've been into a lot of French cinema lately since I've last watched Alexandre Aja's HIGH TENSION (2003), which led me to doing a top 10 favorite French-Language film list myself. Although, I've always been interested in French cinema since middle school. I don't speak its native language (which I would like to learn how to), but I do enjoy watching its cinema as well eating its cuisine and learning a little about its culture. Maybe someday I'll take French soon if I'd like. With all that said, here is my top 10 list for those French-film lovers out there.
My Top 10 French-Language Films
1. CACH╔ (dir. Michael Haneke) (2005)
2. UN CHIEN ANDALOU (dir. Luis Bu˝uel & Salvador Dali) (1929)
3. LA JET╚E (dir. Chris Marker) (1962)
4. IRREVERSIBLE (dir. Gaspar NoÚ) (2002)
5. L'ARGENT (dir. Robert Bresson) (1983)
6. THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC (dir. Carl Th. Dreyer)
7. HIGH TENSION (dir. Alexandre Aja) (2003)
8. GRAND ILLUSION (dir. Jean Renoir) (1937)
9. BREATHLESS (dir. Jean-Luc Godard) (1960)
10. POLICE (dir. Maurice Pialat) (1985)
Also, I've started drawing both SPICE AND WOLF and MAGIC KNIGHT RAYEARTH. Drawing Holo and/or Fuu was little challenging but I sure had fun drawing very well on my first tries and so on. What was more challenging to draw was Hikaru (mostly), Umi, Persea, or Feiro since their hair-styles to draw in first, then draw in the heads. That's how it's done. By the way, I've finished reading the first volume of the original novel for SPICE AND WOLF and it was incredible!
Holo would have to be my favorite character in this series since she's among the prettiest and a true loyal but mysterious wolf-girl.
Anyway, I am having a pal of mine coming over for the night and I just cannot wait because we will have some good dinner while watching some awesome anime I own on DVD & VHS and catch up with our lives. Hope tonight will turn out to be fun with the both of us. One more thing: I have just recieved a phone call from my mother to talk with the other day and still planning on my vacation with her later this month (OMG! It will be epic!).
In conclusion, I don't have anything else new to discuss in this entry except I am looking forward to a good weekend starting today.
And hope ya'll do the same. That is all for now in my life.
