Most films, except those that have graphic portrayals (e.g., violence, sex, foul language, etc.). I enjoy movies that delve into various issues of the human condition and that do so with class and good taste (e.g., a la 1940s and 1950s). Recent favorites: The Intouchables, Quartet
Yes. To brush up on foreign languages and because they tend to be films instead of an expensive excuse to visually assault us with violence, sex and foul language.
Recently: The Intouchables, Quartet. All-time: Dr. Zhivago
I don't typically go by critics' opinions. I'd rather make up my own mind about the movie.
I enjoy independent films because they tend to have a plot and offer more character development. I prefer foreign films because they focus even more on the characters -- their personality, strengths, weaknesses, positives and negatives.
