  1. Dennis Grunes: A short chronology of world cinema's icon

    Dennis Grunes: A short chronology of world cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 51:0. Films listed in Grunes' 2010 book by that title. His selections have a decidedly leftist sociopolitical slant. Notes: 1. For some reason IMDb won't let me add "Diavolo in corpo" (1986), but I managed to add it via ICM at the end. 2. For "September 11" (2002) Grunes specifies the final segment by Shohei Imamura. 3: Not found on IMDb: "Here and perhaps elsewhere" (Houna wa noubbama hunak, 2003) by Lamia Joreiga; "Passages" (2005) by Jon Jost.
  2. BFI Film Classics's icon

    BFI Film Classics

    Favs/dislikes: 9:0. The BFI Film Classics series is a collection of short books analysing major works of world cinema. Volumes in this series have been assembled by some of the world's leading film critics. The first volumes in the series were published in 1992 and new entries continue to be added every year.
  3. A Year of Essential Cinema's icon

    A Year of Essential Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 8:1. Inspired by the chronological charting of film, and the vast history of world cinema, as presented by Mark Cousin's superb 'A Story of Film: An Odyssey', I have decided to make 2012 the year where I finally get to watch those recognised classics and take a bite out of the canon. Follow me as I take on the world of cinema from the silent era to the explosion of the talkies, through the golden age of Hollywood to the uprising of new wave cinema across Europe and worldwide, the uprising of the movie brats to the dawn of independent film making right through to the current digital boom. This list will constantly be updated throughout the year. January - 1895 - 1927 February - 1928 - 1936 March - 1937 - 1946 April - 1947 - 1954 May - 1955 - 1962 June - 1963 - 1967 July - 1968 - 1972 August - 1973 - 1979 September - 1980 - 1987 October - 1988 - 1995 November - 1996 - 2002 December - 2003 - Present
  4. Magic Realism Cinema in East Central Europe's icon

    Magic Realism Cinema in East Central Europe

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. Films that are mentioned in the "Select Filmography" section of the book with the same name.
  5. A Film Atlas by Film Walrus Reviews's icon

    A Film Atlas by Film Walrus Reviews

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. The Film Walrus is a movie review blog with a particular love for foreign, cult, arthouse, gialli, SF and noir. The forgotten, the overlooked and the strange are given their due. The Film Atlas is an ongoing daily series reviewing a favorite film from over 100 countries.
  6. BIFA Award for Best Foreign Independent Film's icon

    BIFA Award for Best Foreign Independent Film

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. The Mo√ęt British Independent Film Awards were established in 1998 by Elliot Grove, founder the Raindance Film Festival. This list includes the movies that won the award for the Best Foreign Independent Film in English Language (1998-2002), Best Foreign Independent Film in a Foreign Language (1998-2002), Best Foreign Independent Film (2003-2014) or Best International Independent Film (2015-today).
  7. Empire's Top 100 Best Films of World Cinema's icon

    Empire's Top 100 Best Films of World Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. Empire: "As the World Cup kicks off in South Africa, now's the time to celebrate the great breadth of world cinema out there. From Brazil to Japan to France and Senegal, from Neo-Realism to Dogme to J-horror, we've compiled a list of the very best films not in the English language (note: features, not documentaries). So rustle up some sushi, strike up a gauloise and make sure you've locked your bicycle as we count down the top 100..." (trilogies, etc. are noted as separate films, hence the 105 total)
  8. Around the World in 260 Films's icon

    Around the World in 260 Films

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. One of my personal projects (still in progress) is to watch at least one film from every country in the world. A friend of mine asked for a more formal list, so I decided this would be the place for it. It's not necessarily about what films I like the most so much as a sample of world cinema, making sure every nation is represented. The countries are represented as follows: USA 10 films; China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan and the UK 5 apiece; Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Mexico, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Spain and Sweden 3; Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Czech Rep., Finland, Greece, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Romania, South Africa, Taiwan and Turkey 2; all other countries 1 except Kiribati, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Seychelles, Solomon Islands, South Sudan, Vatican and Western Sahara (which have not produced feature films).
