  2. Time Out New York's Top 50 Foreign Films of All Time's icon

    Time Out New York's Top 50 Foreign Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 19:0. "There’s no need to fear subtitles when so much of what Hollywood has come to love (pop-cultural patter, epic swordplay, urban ennui, etc.) has its original source in a distant land. But where to begin? Let us be your (extremely opinionated) guides. Our only ground rules for this foreign-language list: no silent films (sorry, Metropolis), and no movies from Britain, Australia or other English-speaking countries. We’re bound to have forgotten a raft of classics—how could we not, with a whole globe to choose from?"
  3. Multiple Best Picture Honors's icon

    Multiple Best Picture Honors

    Favs/dislikes: 17:0. These are the films that have won more than one best picture award, usually by winning Best Picture in its country of origin, then Best Foreign Film in another. For the sake of this list, I limited the list of recognized industry bodies to those from Australia, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, India, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. In the interest of including all continents, I have made two exceptions to the industry award rule for the Gramado & Ouagadougou Film Festivals. I included award categories for feature-length animation, but omitted shorts and documentaries. I also included variations on Best Film and Best Foreign Film, such as BAFTA's Outstanding British Film, the Hong Kong award for Best Asian Film, and the Donatello for Best European Film. All titles are sorted first by number of honors, then year of release. The leader (with 7) is Pedro Almodovar's "All About My Mother", which won the Goya for Best Film plus the Oscar, BAFTA, Cesar, Lola, Donatello, and Guldbagge awards for Best Foreign Film.

  8. Fandor 100 Essential Chinese Movies's icon

    Fandor 100 Essential Chinese Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 10:0. Among the many recent additions to the Fandor catalog, I am most excited by several classic Chinese films that I consider to be among the very best to have ever been made in that language: The Big Road, Street Angel (a film I love so dearly that I modeled my wedding photos after some of its iconic shots), Crossroads, Spring in a Small Town, to name a few. The sight of these titles got me thinking: what are the essential movies that anyone curious about Chinese cinema needs to see? The following video of 50 essential Chinese language films – and expanded list of 100 essential films found further below – is my attempt at an answer.
  9. Marion Cotillard Filmography's icon

  12. Taste of Cinema: The 30 Best Non-English Horror Films of the Past 25 Years's icon

    Taste of Cinema: The 30 Best Non-English Horror Films of the Past 25 Years

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. Summary from the site: "Non-English language horror cinema has always been an important part of the genre film landscape but never more so than the past quarter-century. The American film industry may look at foreign horror films primarily as targets for remakes but non-English language horror is a vital part of a genre that would be severely if not fatally diminished in quality without it."

  23. 20/20 Award Best Foreign Language Film's icon

    20/20 Award Best Foreign Language Film

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. From the website: "The 20/20 Awards uses the advantage of time and perspective to annually re-evaluate the Oscars from 20 years prior. Utilizing the benefit of hindsight, a voting body of film industry professionals from around the world carefully elects either new or previous nominees, and hosts a live awards ceremony, designed to both honor and offer new perspective with fresh commentary on the impact of this body of work on cinema itself, and its influence on our culture. Every year since 1927, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognizes excellence in the film industry through the Academy Awards®, bestowing honors upon films, directors, actors, screenwriters, and technical artists who created outstanding art in cinema. The awards are given in the spring, honoring those films released in the previous calendar year. However, as with all annual award ceremonies, the Academy Awards® lack two of history’s most reliable criteria for appraising artistic merit: time and perspective. By bestowing awards on film-work released merely the year before, errant factors often come into play such as fleeting trends, industry politics, favoritism, marketing campaigns and short term current events that translate little out of context. Sifting through the list of Academy Award winners over the decades reveals a multitude of films, directors, screenplays, performances, musical scores and other contributions that have not stood well against the cold scrutiny of time. Meanwhile, many neglected films have proved to be far more influential to the medium, continuing to resonate with modern audiences and critics far more than many of the Oscar winning films. The 20/20 Awards offer a unique alternative to prevailing award shows, emphasizing the test of time as the key criterion by which films and filmmakers should be honored. Looking back twenty years affords voters an insight free from industry insiderism and the contemporary zeitgeist." This is the list of best foreign language films, as selected by The 20/20 Awards.
