Mine is a tie between "Like Water for Chocolate" and "Farewell My Concubine"
foreign films or independent films are the best!
I've seen many french films, southamerican, spanish..etc etc
City of God (brazilian) was one of the best I seen. great film!
What's considered as foreign film? A film that's not American?
I really liked City of God as well, it's brilliant. Amelié is lovely and so is this Finnish film, Helmiä ja Sikoja. There are so many good ones...
My favorite is Run Lola Run. It has some of the best camera work i've ever seen.
The Good, The Bad And The Ugly(It)
Brotherhood of the Wolf(Fr)
The Battleship Potemkin(?Ru)
The Red Lantern(Ch)
All of my favourite films are not American.
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
Wow...tough question. "Y Tu Mama Tambien" is a movie I can watch over and over both for the scenery and the story. "Amores Perros" is intense but beautifully done. "The City of Lost Children" is bizarrely wonderful. I could name many, many more but those are the first ones that come to mind.
any Python film
Do you mean foreign, as in subtitled.?
If so mine is Betty Blue. (French)
Goodbye Lenin! (Germany)
Life Is Beautiful
Foreign to whom? You Americans are so insular!
My current favourite foreign film is "Team America" by Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
man bites dog is probably my favorite foreign film...i hadn't yet then nor have i still seen anything like it. also trainspotting and y tu mama tambien are great.
"CITY OF GOD", pretty much the best movie I've ever seen
its a beautiful life
O, wow, this is REALLY hard for me... who like whores Foreign (especially Japanese!!!!) Films.
I would say its a contest between...
+++ Battle Royale
+++ Suicide Circle (AKA: Suicide Club)
If you havent seen any of the three... go see them RIGHT now!!
Im with bluespade, Run Lola Run was an amazing movie. Absolutly fantastic. Brotherhood of the Wolf and Children of the Lost City are also great movies.
