good foreign films?

mainly asian ones, but others i can look at. i saw the suicide club a few days ago…very abstract.
Some more popular ones that you may have seen already but:
The Audition
Battle Royale
7 zumecki (sp?)
Itchi the Killer

If you haven’t seen any of those they’re pretty good but I’m not a huge foreign film buff
battle royale is good
curse of the golden flower is too
The Host

Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance
Oldboy
Sympathy for Lady Vengeance

Ebola Syndrome
Red to Kill
Daughter of Darkness
Story of Ricky
Am watching battle royale now…liking it.keep em coming, i might watch em all!
a short description of the film would be nice.

also anyone have any chinese films? not kung-fu or one with ancient settings…i’m tired of those. but something more modern and meaningful.

In The Mood For Love
Chungking Express
Last Life In The Universe
Yi Yi
Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance
Oldboy
9 Souls
Raise The Red Lantern

I’ve recently been going through Asian films first. I have a feeling that I’m running out of Asian films to watch, so I’m starting to make a slow transition to European films.
from what i’ve seen, the Audition,Curse Golden Flower,the Eye, and the Host suck ass.

a lot of these asian movies (not Curse of GF) might have a good story line but the acting and production suck.

get fucked
You could go to IMDB and choose a power search option. They have a lot of criteria to filter movies by.
I’m getting into the korean movies lately, some top ones out there are:

the host (monster movie)
oldboy (easily the best out there)
my sassy girl (chick flick, but still kinda good)
sex is zero (american pie)
tae guk gi (saving private ryan)
i have seen the host. was decent
i have no seen battle royale and battle royale 2. loved the first, but hated the 2nd.

I have also seen curse of the golden curse

Right now i’m downloading after life…the plot seems very intriguing. It’s about how people who have passed away. They are in a waiting room, and can only take 1 memory of their lives to heaven. The movie is about a search for the man’s best memory in his life.

I have been hearing lots of Last life in the universe suggestions. can anyone elaborate on what the plot is?
Flowers of Blood and Romance
Mermaid in a Manhole

Great family fun!

That guy has written alot of cool manga.
Anything by Wong Kar-Wai:

Happy Together
Chungking Express
Days of Being Wild
Ashes of Time
As Tears Go By (sort of Mean Streets)
In the Mood For Love
Fallen Angels (hit man movie)
2046

and more.

Beijing Bicycle
Go!
Attack the Gas Station
I don’t particularly care for Asian movies, so:

Goodbye, Lenin
Y Tu Mama Tambien?
Volver

Y Tu Mama Tambien was good. I would also recommend City of God.
(absolute must-see)

Miike Takashi’s (has nothing to do with shitty video game movie)

(French film)

…Just to name a few.

Good Bye Lenin!

The outline from IMDB: "In 1990, to protect his fragile mother from a fatal shock after a long coma; a young man must keep her from learning that her beloved nation of East Germany as she knew it has disappeared."
Why am I the first person in this thread to say "La Haine"
the chanwook park vengeance trilogy is absolutely epic. as is both battle royales and if you are looking for a pretty good european film try man bites dog.

Battle Royale was brilliant. Also Der Untergang (translation: Downfall) is a great movie about WWII and the last days of Hitler. HIghly recommended if you enjoy WWII movies.

from what i’ve seen, the Audition,Curse Golden Flower,the Eye, and the Host suck ass.

a lot of these asian movies (not Curse of GF) might have a good story line but the acting and production suck.

LOL… wow… Audition and The Host both have great acting and great production. Audition is a twisted horror like only Miike Takashi can pull off. The Host has some of the best CG monster effects I have ever seen in a movie. Beside that, it is a pretty good drama; sometimes melodrama but to the point of comedy.
