Foreign films I've watched recently (and not so recent), that are worth watching.
In no particular order...

1. Cinema Paradiso - Giuseppe Tornatore

2. The Bicycle Thieves - Vittorio De Sica

3. Aquirre: The Wrath of God - Werner Herzog/ Klaus Kinski

4. Fitzcarraldo - Werner Herzog/ Klaus Kinski

5. Woyzeck - Werner Herzog/ Klaus Kinski

6. Nosferatu (seeing as this thread is for foreign films and not silents I'm recommending the Herzog/ Kinski 1972 remake).

7. Mesrine: Killer Instinct, (parts 1 & 2) - Jean - Francois Richet

8. "M" - Fritz Lang

9. Pans Labyrinth - Guillermo Del Toro

10. Amorres Perros - Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu

11.) The Diving Bell and the Butterfly - Julian Schnabel

12.) Let The Right One In - Tomas Alfredson

These are all completely worth watching in my opinion, with such a vast number of good foreign films out there - you won't be disappointed!

Princess Mononoke. 2nd viewing, even better than the first, I love this film.

Confessions. Really disappointed. It started well, then got progressively more cliched and was far too long.

The most recent foreign  film I watched was the Bollywood movie "3 Idiots". It's a really wonderful movie about life and friendship, in fact it has placed itself no.1 in my top 5 list of favorite foreign films. It'll make you laugh and cry at the same time. I've also seen  "Ashita no Kioku"(Memories of Tomorrow) from Japan, starring Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai). It's also a beautiful story of a man suffering from Alzheimer's disease . It's a definite tearjerker. Other favorites of mine would be "The Classic" and "My Sassy Girl" from Korea and Hero starring Jet Li from China.

Tout Va Bien
Godard and Gorin grab the story - an American journalist (Jane Fonda) who lives with her husband, a Nouvelle Vague film director who`s over the hill, in the rebelling Paris of 1968 - to express (especially Godard`s) dissatisfaction about the political situation in France and the ever growing greed of a big part of the population.

The political work of Godard is something that has to be up your alley more than anything else but the way it`s brought to the screen is well worth watching. Even though it`s a feature film it does look at some moments like a mixture of film and documentary. The "trick" that Godard uses often (for example in A Woman Is A Woman) is present here: he lets his characters look straight into the camera, to involve the audience but more than anything else to make you aware that you`re watching a film.

Sometimes it does drag on too much and your attention can fade. But it still is a good addition to my Godard collection and it`s a great way to see how he works towards and shows bits of his later more radical politic work.
Not his best work by a mile but for Godard fans it sure is a worth to spend 96 minutes on.
7,0/10

A bit long (almost 3 hours!) but charming, melancholic, brilliant nonetheless!
7/10




A stark contrast to the latter choice. This is brilliant and has one of my favourite French actors - Vincent Cassel in it. A must see!
9/10

Dhobi Ghat
I watched Dhobi Ghat. I don't know why but I have a thing for Bollywood movies.  The film takes place in Mumbia. There are four main characters. All of the characters somehow intersect with each other. The develop relationships. Even with all their stories the film stays focused. I thought the acting was superb for a Bollywood movie. Aamir did a good job of acting through just his facial reactions.
8.0/10

And how was that?
I'm imagining that it was significantly worse than Tiger on Beat.

Wu Xia (Dragon) (2011) starring Donnie Yen and Takeshi Kaneshiro - 7/10

Some awesome fight choreography from Donnie Yen and the inclusion of the noir-ish detective was very cool. Got a bit melodramatic near the end though.

Watched this afternoon:

The Complete Jean Vigo
As is rightly mentioned in the booklet that comes with this release: there are probably not many influential directors in cinema history who`s whole body of work you can watch within one afternoon. Jean Vigo passed away in 1934, only 29 years of age. Therefor he made only four films, all of wich are collected here and have a running time of just under three hours.
All four are different but do have similarities, for example the gorgeous camera work and the use of different film techniques (slowmotion being one of the most important ones).
His last film L`atalante is the best one of the four but I also loved Zero de Conduite.

A Propos de Nice: 6,8/10
Taris: 6,5/10
Zéro de Conduite: 7,5/10
L`atalante: 8,0/10

Seen this afternoon:

Profondo Rosso (Deep Red)
A really creepy horror-thriller from Dario Argento in wich he in turns makes you try to solve the murders and places you in the shoes of the killer, thanks to the first person camera work that works great. That made the film real special for me, it really gets you involved in the plot.
The film is really, really scary as well, almost literally a nail biter.
Too bad that the UK Arrow blu-ray`s picture quality is real bad a lot of the times , if it wasn`t for that I would`ve enjoyed it even more without a doubt.

9,0/10
