My top 5:
La Jette (Chris Marker)
The last year at Marienbad (Alain Renoir)
Kill Bill (Tarantino)
Metropolis (Fritz Lang)
Criterion Collection I love you!
Genres: (as you may see): Nouvelle Vague french cinema, Italian
classic films (Fellini, Franco Zeffirelli) Japanese (Kurosawa,
I am very open and also enjoy some tv series and some pop-corn
movies too :D, why not? Right now "Medium" (the one where Patricia
Arquette is a psychic) Is stealing all my time! Dammm!
My Ipod has 14,000 songs and I play an instrument, so I guess it's
common to say that I like a lot of genres and bands, but it's like
that. I will try to put some here:
Beirut, Velvet Underground, The Knife, Alabama Shakes,Tame Impala,
Alt J, Jeff Buckley, Leonard Cohen, The Drums, Devo, Los Fancy
Free, Los Punsetes (from Spain) and a lot more in spanish that you
may not know... :)
Classics like David Bowie, U2, King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, Jaco
Pastorius and a lot more!

Garcia Marquez, Saramago, Ernesto Sabato...
My favorite latin authors are Julio Cortazar, the Mexican poet
Xavier Villaurrutia and others. I read translations of non-latin
writers too as it must be.
I recently finished "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle" (Murakami) and I
found it quite cool.
I love "Godel, Escher & Bach, an eternal golden braid". That's
not the kind of thing that you finish in a row (at least not me)
but is fascinating to jump into it several times a year...
I am in the "The Satanic Verses". I want to start "Juliet Naked"
(Nick Hornby). That one is waiting for me for almost 2 years!
I read a lot about music (magazines, web sites, about vinyl
records, about post-punk and other interesting things that cross my
And I can read your lips! :O !
