"Foreign Film" at Film Forum
Cinema lives?every time a link is made with film history, every time you can see a classic (old or new) that recalls why this medium matters. In Film Forum's current program, "The Golden Age of the Foreign Film," the film culture we used to know?but that certainly died along with regular repertory houses?is temporarily reborn (the series runs through Sept. 14). Reviving foreign language films in America is a noble, fun task; it establishes where American film lovers and makers learned to take movies seriously, to realize there was art in this popular, pleasurable entertainment form.
