    What's considered as foreign film? A film that's not American? :p

    Anyhooh..
    I really liked City of God as well, it's brilliant. AmeliƩ is lovely and so is this Finnish film, HelmiƤ 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.

    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.

    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)
    +++ Uzumaki

    If you havent seen any of the three... go see them RIGHT now!!
