And what exactly means "skin tone"? I think that term shouldn't be used, it's just too ambiguous and while not racist "per se" it's certainly not the best to describe the wide range of human melanin concentration on skin. I understand it is a term used historicaly by the photo industry, but I guess it's about time to stop using it, don't you agree?
With all due respect to Mr. Scorssese and though that's his list and I'm just nobody, "foreign cinema" seems to be acording to him:
France, Italy, Germany and Japan, (from a fast reading of the titles, I may be wrong). In my list I'd put more countries to better represent "foreign cinema" for example I'd put Buñuel, and where's Kubrik, Tarkovsky, Eisenstein?....
well, so good as it is it's just Scorssese's list.
illustrate us, please
A bit tired of being always put into the same bag, like it was a mantra "Spain, Grece and Portugal".
Although being hardly hit by the recession and with a serious unemployement problem, Spain is very different ftom Greece and Portugal. For instance there are really big Spanish companies operating globaly like Inditex (Zara), Santander bank, Sacyr (just finished the new Panama canal) Ave (making the high speed train for various countries) and Telefonica, to name a few, whereas these kinds of companies are practically non existent in Greece and Portugal.
To give you an idea, the combined value of the most important companies in Spain is 511$ billion, the Greek ones have a value of 25$ billion.
that's just one of the differences.
I'd wish every person saying "Spain, Greece and Portugal" would be better informed.
