    The Irony of Fate

    This Russian love story is full of extremely hot Russian women. It's an incredible film but that's probably all I need to say to make you watch it.

  • 5

    Pan's Labrynth

    Not for the faint of heart, this Spanish/Mexican film about the Spanish Civil War has incredible special effects but disturbing violence.

  • 6

    20 elite cops storm a high-rise building occupied by a notorious and deadly gang in this Indonesian film and its sequel.

    The Three Idiots

    If you're going to see one Indian film in your life (and remember Slumdog Millionaire is British), this should be it.

    The Gods Must Be Crazy

    You won't need subtitles for this one. A comedy from South Africa, this movie has a cult following. It's the story of a bushman trying to return an object that fell from the sky. The sequel is OK, too.
