wikipedia's interesting info

while going through the wikipedia's long list of "film genres" which included several such film genres that you may never have heard of. But interestingly...u may have seen those films but would have never known that this particular film belongs to say the Wuxia genre and so on.

But among these different genres they had named a genre - "cinematic style of Abbas Kiarostami" - Wow thats a different genre altogether. A film genre that is named after a director - who could have done that. so then that fact takes me back to my favourite line by Jean-Luc-Goddard - "cinema begins with DW Griffith and ends with Kiarostami"

what remains on my list to be seen is his first film "The Traveller". and the rest of this genre have been experienced!
