I really like some Borzage films in the late 20s- Street Angel, Lucky Star and The River (fragments).

Have you seen Sansho the Bailiff by my favourite director Mizoguchi?

No, I haven't but thanks for the suggestion, Kenji. I'll try to watch it soon. :)

Have you seen John Sayles' film called Men with Guns (1997)? It's one of his best films and one of the few he's done in Spanish. I have been writing Criterion as a suggestion to buy the rights to it since it's never been released to DVD. Also, what is your favorite Mike Leigh film?

Not seen 'Men with Guns' yet, Shaun. Favorite Mike Leigh film is 'Secrets and Lies'.
