Have not seen any, but he looks a bit like Derryn Hinch (you would need to be Australian to know him)

El Sur (1983)
★ ★
Similarities to Spirit of the Beehive with a young girl trying to understand the adult world (specifically her father) through a very limited view, connecting the mystery with cinema. (Shadow of a Doubt is briefly mentioned, but enough that you see it reflected in events here.) Despite all that, it doesn't come together in the same magical dreamy way.


La Morte Rouge (2006)
★ ★ ★ - Good
Playful short documentary in the style of Agnes Varda. Erice talks about his first cinema experience - the Sherlock Holmes feature The Scarlet Claw, which I own - expanding outward from there to make specific observations of the time and place, creating the feeling of a magical summer that possibly changed the filmmaker's life forever.
