Arizona Dream – His American debut. Upon seeing this I came to the conclusion that Kusturica has a “hanging” fetish. Watch some more of his stuff and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
Underground – Cannes Winner, and an all around pretty terrific film.
Black Cat/White Cat – Great Gypsy music. Don’t quote me on this, but I think this was the first film he made after he supposedly quit filmmaking. It was a short retirement. You’ll recognize Branka Katic from several American productions like HBO’s Big Love and Michael Mann’s underwhelming Public Enemies.
