This week's theme from Wandering Through the Shelves is another foreign edition. Films in the Spanish language. One of my all time favorite foreign films happens to be Spanish, but when I went to type up this post this week, I realized I've only seen a handful of Spanish films. I'll need to broaden my horizon. Here are a few I enjoy.
1) Pan's Labyrinth
This is one of my favorite films. It's so stylish, I loved the dark fairy tale element to it tied into the horrors of living with a crazy tyrant of a step father.
2) The Sea Inside
I watched this for the first time during Four Ways a Best Picture and it was one of the stronger foreign contenders for me. Javier Bardem was wonderful.
3) The Orphanage
I toyed with the idea of this one or Rec, both are creepy Spanish horror films, but this one is a bit more memorable to me due to its haunting visuals.
