not yet a cinemaphile

... but definitely a movie lover! Some say I have a tendency for more depressing movies, with what I must disagree. I don't really like labels but if I must give one to my movie taste, I would say I am generally an anti-blockbuster kind of movie. Only generally, because I also have those days when I only feel like spending my time with some frivolous titles. I confess I cannot resist a well told love story, specially the ones that make me cry. But I do admit I am usually tempted to go for the ones with a realistic appeal, based on historical events, or denouncing injustice, criticising rights violations... ok, maybe they're not that cheerful in the end! Anyway, welcome to my never-ending-work-in-progress movie list!

* Recommendations are more than welcome!
