FRC Icon World Tour

Today my good friend Scott/Custard has allowed me to guest post over at Front Room Cinema.

For those of you not aware of his fantastically interesting series on the icons of world cinema, the concept was to invite bloggers from around the world to introduce iconic film makers and actors from their countries to Scott's front room.

I was post #10 and shared my appreciation Australia's unwanted son Christopher Doyle.

Before me however other great bloggers have shared the following talented film makers:
Kiyoshi Kurosawa of Japan (from Jason at Genkinahito)
Wong Kar Wai of Hong Kong (from BT at Bonjour Tristesse)
Amitabh Bachchan of India (from Raghav at Ticker Talk Films)
The Babes of Serbia (from Dezmond at The Hollywood Spy)
Oleksandr Dovzhenko of Ukraine (from Lesya at Eternity of Dream)
Aki Kaurismäki of Finland (from Anna at Split Reel)
Mikael Persbrandt of Sweden (from Joel at Deny Everything)
Klaus Kinski of Germany (from Vanessa at The Movie Ness)
Henri Georges Clouzot of France (from Jack at Jack L Film Reviews)

I think this may have been the last week as we are now as far from England as possible unless there's a New Zealand post or America and Ireland maybe? I'm not sure but it's been a fun and enlightening 10 weeks so far.


  1. Thanks Toby for the great linkage here!! Indeed we are pretty far away from UK now.

    I have got a few more planned NZ, Argentina and USA still to come. May try and get an Irish one in at the end too!!
