Default Foreign Films

I think we need a thread like this...

Everytime I see a great/amazing foreign film... i can see the producers/directors/writers giving Hollywood the middle finger. I love foreign films. Why? If you can get into watching them you'll see why. They're so much better than a lot of the crap that is being shoved in our faces here. I love tons of genres, like martial arts, horror, and a good sub-genre where theres blood and gore pretty much throughout the entire movie, and humans have enough blood to fill the oceans (I'll give movie examples)

Plus the nice thing about these movies is you can find a ton of them on youtube

If you like foreign films we could discuss them here, or if you've never seen them here can be a great place to find awesome movies to watch :3

Some of the martial arts movies Ive seen...
Ip man, Fearless, House of Flying Daggers, The Raid: Redemption, Forbidden Kingdom to name a few

Some of the horror movies
Audition (probably my favorite... definitely stuck with me and was very disturbing), 4bia, A Tale Of Two Sisters, The Wig (sounds silly but was surprisingly very good), The Doll Master, Shutter, Ringu, Ju-on to name a few more

Splatter Films! =D (these are movies where the more blood and gore and bizarre stuff the better! Sounds F#cked up, but they're mostly comical how much blood and gore they use)
Tokyo Gore Police (Super awesome), Tetsuo, The Iron Man, Machine Girl, Samurai Princess, Meatball Machine to name a few.

Any foreign films you've seen/enjoyed/want to review? Post them here!

My favourite film is foreign. It's by a director called James Cameron.

The Story of Ricky is great if you're into splatter films. I don't normally watch that kind of stuff, but in this case the gore & splatter is so extremely over-the-top that it's hilarious. It also gets bonus points for bad English dubbing.

I haven't seen too many foreign films yet.

My favourite so far would have to be Rosso Come il Cielo (Red like the Sky) which is a great italian short film about a boy who becomes blind in an accident and gets sent to a school for the handicapped. Not discouraged, his creativity soars and he makes audio tapes using everyday sound (such as the sound of bees) with his new friends.

120 days of Sodom is a classic.
