Foreign Language Films
I'm a fan. I love Hollywood movies, but I'm also drawn to the European and Asian style of storytelling. I find European films very character driven sometimes to the point of them being very slow. But who says everything has to be FAST? They take the time to build tension and add layer upon layer. I believe in order to be a well rounded writer, one has to immerse themselves in all art forms. Watching foreign films is a key component to that experience.
