Happy July 28th! Peruvian Movies on Netflix

July 28th? Yup. July 28th. Otherwise known as Peruvian Independence Day. It’s been a little over two years since I moved to the U.S., so in view that I can’t spend the holiday with my countrymen (and countrywomen?), I decided to check out some Peruvian movies. 721 more words


Yella (Christian Petzold, 2007)

The former investment banker is interviewed at length in Marc Bauder’s riveting docu “Master of the Universe,” shot in the emptied rooms of a defunct financial institution that stands as physical testimony to the unbridled hubris to which Voss, like an addict, hitched his career. 676 more words


A Separation/Jodaeiye Nader az Simin (2011/Iran)
