Favorite Foreign Films

Run Lola Run. Damn, a hell of a film. It reminds me of the refreshing quality of  foreign film and decentralizes my perspective so I can be reminded that film is not purely American-centric. There are other countries making films. Which brings me to my question of the day, what are people’s favorite foreign films? Here are some of mine

(In no particular order)

Blue is the Warmest Color

8 1/2

Once Upon A Time In the West

Y Tu Mama Tambien

The Hunt


CIty of God

Run Lola Run

The Holy Mountain

This list just reaffirms that i’ve got to start watching much more!

  1. Some of my favorite ones which I watched while I was abroad studying in Greece, were:

    East Is East (1999)
    Damien O’Donnell

    La Haine (1995)
    Mathieu Kassovitz

    The Edge of Heaven (2008)
    Fatih Akın

  2. You listed some really great movies. Blue is the Warmest Color, City of God, and The Hunt are all some of the best movies I have seen and I enjoyed them all thoroughly. If you are looking for some more to watch I suggest:

    The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (Very sad)

    Anti-Christ (Very messed up)

    Das Boot

    These are just some that I enjoyed and maybe you will like them as well.
