10 Best Foreign Films You Must See Right Now

If weather is forcing you to cancel your plans, may we recommend a movie? Here are 10 of the best foreign films everyone should see. Many are available on Netflix. Several more can be found at Hastings in Richland (on George Washington Way). Enjoy!


1

City of God

 
 

The incredible true story of a photographer documenting the gang warfare in urban Brazil.

 
2

Oldboy (Korean)

 
 

A man is abducted for several years and then released to find out why and seek vengeance.

 
3

Ip Man

 
 

One of the greatest kung fu movies of the past 25 years.

 

 
4

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

The Raid (1 & 2)

 
 

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

 
7

Akira

 
 

Anime for people who don't like anime. This film is called the greatest animated movie of all time.

 
8

Seven Samurai

 
 

Largely considered the greatest Japanese film of all time, Seven Samurai's is also widely renowned as one of the best films of all time period. The plot has inspired countless films since its 1954 release.

 

 
9

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.

 
10

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.
