Looking for some god-tier foreign films to watch. give me some.
Just got done watching city of god, pan's labyrinth and oldboy. Liked them all and planning on watching the intouchables next.
Y Tu Mamá También
Rudo Y Cursi (Thats a comedy, my favorite mexican comedy)
Give em a try, here in México we got good films,
"4" by Ilya Khrzhanovsky
feels like you're in the darkest corners of Russia for 2 hours
I second this >>580417607
Best foreign film I've watched
That and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy (Swedish Ones)
The Daniel Craig one was good but the Swe. ones are more raw and have adaptations of all three books
1 Litre of Tears
Movie based on the diary of a girl who suffers from spinocerebellar ataxia. Striking first person account of her body falling to the disease.

One of the best foreign films I have ever seen
And before you start incorrectly bitching about anti-intellectualism, this is coming from someone who is fucking learning Japanese just to watch some cartoons. So fuck you double, nigger.
it's called peripheral vision and being able to afford two monitors because you are hustling instead of jerking off about how good you are at appreciating the vision of the auteur.
This one's really goddamn good.
Also, the Diving Bell and the Butterfly.
Army of Shadows was a pretty decent french film.
I know right, what a fucking spazzed out ADD 12-year-old.
"Muh dubs, I can't be arsed to actually watch a movie when it's playing." It's literally the least involved form of entertainment and this lizard is too dumb to keep up.
The fact that it was a true story made it somewhat more special than others.
Although that was in its own genre of heartfelt comedy, as a more gritty film Dragon Tattoo movies do it for me.
Anime wise "Akira"
(I just watched the 25th anniversary BluRay of it and it came with an English dub but it doesnt feel as captivating when not in Japenese)
Black Book was voted the best dutch film ever. Very cool film.
If you want to hold my interest long enough to have a little bitch fight here on the interwebs, say shit that actually makes sense in context, fuckstick.
I DON'T HAVE FREE TIME BECAUSE I'M FUCKING BUSY YOU FUCKING RETARD. THE ONLY REASON I'M TALKING IN THIS FUCKING THREAD IS BECAUSE I'M FUCKING REINITIALIZING MY FUCKING 12 NODE HADOOP CLUSTER.
Nobody cares why you don't have free time. It's literally irrelevant to everything, you're just trying to increase your e-peen by making it sound like you have important shit to do.
I'm making fun of you because despite being busy, you still try to watch movies and complain that it's too difficult to watch a movie when your attention is diverted. Of course it is, retard. Why are you trying to watch a movie when you're busy?
let the right one in.
Not the retardedanised american version with the chick from Kickass in it.
Also 'the hunt' starring the german guy from Hannibal. Its about pedophiles. Top tier. Arguably god tier.
'Mother'. korean film. top tier
I'm South-African. But yeah I mean non-english films. This was a pretty good movie made in South-Africa
Mind you, there are the occasional exceptions that must be made. Gaspar Noe for instance. I always have time for Noe.
Bong Joon-ho also. Luc Besson occasionally. Timur Bekmambetov.
But other than that, I ain't got time for no bullshit looky loo.
Great film. Canada-France co-production. Heavy. Stays in your mind a long time.
the 400 blows
3 colours trilogy
la pere noel est un ordure (funny as fuck)
rules of the games
la dolce vita
This guy is correct - never watch dubbed films
great suspense film. has the kingslayer
I like action films. Here's my favorite foreign action movies.
Hero. God tier cinematography. But if you don't like crouching tiger stuff you might not like it.
Infernal affairs. The movie "the departed" 100% copied infernal affairs.
District 13, aka B13. It's basically "Parkour: the movie."
PS. Everyone who said old boy is a good film is telling the truth.
Omfg this movie... Took 2 tabs of LSD and Watched it with some friends as the trip came on... What a mind fuck. But amazing movie. It had us by the balls toward the end. It's become a safe word among us
I'm not bragging about how much money I'm making. I'm not making money. I'm building something that is going to make me rich. This is not bragging. This is explaining the reason why I do not have time to sit down and read a movie for two hours.
Also my cluster awaits, so allow me to sum up my argument with the following:
I'm building an AI while learning Japanese.
Please. Say more things about how you are better than me, because you are good at liking the moving pictures, faggot.
Castaway on the Moon
Flipped a coin when it popped up on my recommended list ended up loving it. Now it's one of my all time favorites.
You being French doesn't mean shit.
Besson is great but if you think French films are bad you either have poor taste in film, or you haven't seen many French films. Try ones that were made before you were born.
Beauty and the Beast (original, not Disney)
Manon of the Spring
Children of Paradise
3 Colours Trilogy
Jules & Jim
The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie
Trop Belle pour Toi
Cyrano de Bergerac
the Piano Teacher
the Return of Martin Guerre
and a lot more
"The City of Lost Children".
My favorite somewhat deep & dark Christmas classic!
Do yourself a favor and watch it in the original French. You can always watch the dubbed version afterwards. You'll wanna watch it again anyway! I watch it in December every year!
You want a movie that'll move you?
"La Vita e Bella" (Life Is Beautiful).
Playing a movie at the same time as doing something else is NOT watching a movie.
Not a serious movie, anyway. I guess you could watch most action movies that way, or Adam Sandler movies, but not a real movie.
>Le Temps Du Loup
>La Vie d'Adèle
>well, pretty much anything done by Gaspar Noe
If this is bad, then I assume you've got some pretty fucking high standards because anything else is shit-tier.
>You can always watch the dubbed version afterwards.
NEVER ruin a movie by watching a dubbed version.
It's like putting home heating oil in a Ferrari, or adding tobacco to weed like a poorfag.
Highly recommend the above but my favorite is Let the Right One In
>Besson is great
Go fuck a bag of chips, Besson WAS great, he went full retard after the Fifth element
If you're looking for a masterpiece
If you had been paying attention you would notice that i actually did mention that I do make some exceptions. But they are exceptions. The rule is that I have too much shit to do to watch a fucking movie.
This is now actively taking time away from my work and thus I am closing the tab and walking the fuck away from you ambitionless faggots who are jerking themselves off over appreciating someone else's work because they believe that, in some way, reflects positively on them any further than not being a complete retard.
Good day to you, sir.
Does Canada count as foreign?
Because anything Astron 6 made in Winnipeg deserves to be considered
You should watch Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Lady Vengeance. They have the same director as Oldboy and I actually prefer them over Oldboy as well.
3-iron (weirdish, but top tier)
Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (by the director of Oldboy)
The Front Line (from Korean war)
Ip Man (superb kung fu)
also this (at least the first one)
The Wave is good so is City of Lost Children
