  1. Some good choices there Mark, and some I have not heard of before for me to check out. For me, a choice of foreign films would have to have the Director Kurosawa at the top of the list. Any of his films are worth watching, in particular Seven Samurai, Ran, and Yojimbo.
    Others I would include are:
    Cinema Paradiso – classic
    Talk to Her directed by Pedro Almodovar
    The Seventh Seal directed by Ingmar Bergman
