- EMMANUELLE 5? nigga what film school shows EMMANUELLE movies!? But I have seen a good number of foreign films, including Irreversible that is on this list, and that RAPE scene was over the top in my opinion but was essential to the story and plus there was no visible penetration - the other scenes I didn't see or they were edited from the version i saw...but no, alot of the films that I've watched and studied are indeed american films. I am biased in that regards...and i still refuse to watch Brown Bunny.
*edit* but don't get it twisted - maybe u can argue that I got a faux education, but we learned and studied avant-garde and watched films like Triumph of the Will and The Hidden Fortress...these are TRUE CLASSICS and films that shaped cinema...

- LOL...I know emmanuelle movies but that doesn't mean any respectable film student should know about it...plus, I minored in film studies, my major was in broadcast communications...
