Dennis Grunes: A short chronology of world cinema

Dennis Grunes: A short chronology of world cinema's icon

Created by 3eyes.

Favorited 51 times, disliked 0 times, added to 43 watchlists.

Films listed in Grunes' 2010 book by that title. His selections have a decidedly leftist sociopolitical slant.

Notes:

1. For some reason IMDb won't let me add "Diavolo in corpo" (1986), but I managed to add it via ICM at the end.

2. For "September 11" (2002) Grunes specifies the final segment by Shohei Imamura.

3: Not found on IMDb: "Here and perhaps elsewhere" (Houna wa noubbama hunak, 2003) by Lamia Joreiga; "Passages" (2005) by Jon Jost.
