This movie was recommended to me when I was in like 1988 or so & I got to watch this only in 2012 or so. I cannot think of any movie that can come close to this concept. What a brilliant idea & movie it is. Good that you mentioned despite I missing to mention it.

Watched it based on IMDB's recommendation & needless to say, it was worth watching the movie. Got to know many practices on the other side of the world. It's a must watch & good that you mentioned it.

Brilliant Thread!! Got to know of a great deal of great movie names. Here's my addition:

  1. Oldboy - best korean movie according to me aka Zinda
  2. The Chaser - aka Murder 2
  3. I saw the Devil - Ek Villian
  4. Man from No Where - aka Rocky Handsome
  5. Memories of Murder
  6. Department Q: The Keeper of Lost Causes - Danish thriller - beyond the clutches of bollywood
  7. Fasandrćberne - 2nd movie of the same series
  8. Jagten - Best Danish movie I've seen
  9. The Loft - Dutch-language Belgian movie, again beyond bollywood
  10. Contratiempo - Spanish aka Badla
  11. Relatos salvajes - Argentine aka Wild Tales in Netflix quite nice
  12. Y Tu Mamá También - Mexican
  13. Amélie - the best French movie I've seen
  14. Léon - Aka Bichoo
  15. Tropa de Elite 2 – O Inimigo Agora é Outro - AKA the elite squad 2, best brazilian movie and best performance by Moura, better than Narcos I'd say
  16. Tropa de Elite - Elite Squad 1
  17. Stieg Larsson trilogy - Swedish and Noomi Rapace was too good
Bollywood has infiltrated foreign lands and have made really cheap copies of some great movies. I still prefer subtitles than the bolly remake

Night Watch and the sequel Day Watch : 4.5 / 5 (Russian)
An absolutely brilliant movie of good vs evil forces taken in a completely different take with a flavor of superheroes and supernatural concept thrown in. The first movie ends at a cliffhanger with an even better sequel that covers up the storyline. The protagonist would be familiar to many, with his numerous small roles in Hollywood.

District 13 and the sequel District 13 : Ultimatum : 4.5 / 5 (French)
The movie is known for its impressive display of 'parkour' techniques with its excellent action scenes and fast paced storyline. The sequel isn't that great as compared to the first movie, but both movies definitely pack a strong punch.

Watched this movie like 2-3 times, absolutely great movie, just no words to describe. So great. Sometimes it makes me wonder, if movies that are based on narration are really good. Eg, Shawshank Redemption, Limitless, Fight Club

Hi All,

Firstly, I am stunned that any movie threads existed here at all!! I am smiling ear to ear for the simple fact that 2 of my favorites - Cars & Movies are in the same forum, I mean can you believe it???

I will be exploring more of the English & other threads as well, meantime almost all of the foreign movies that i have watched are already listed here by others and then there are some that I haven't heard so that makes for a great 'To-Do' list.

Let me add one from my side - Largo Winch 1 & 2 (French). These are not classics but simple masala movies.

Also the original Swedish version of the Millennium series (girl with dragon, girl who played fire and girl who kicked...)

I quite like Guillermo Del Toro's early non english works - especially El laberinto del fauno (aka Pan Labyrinth) and Cronos.

After being introduced to the world of Korean movies a few years back, I now struggle to sit through most of the Hollywood and Bollywood movies. The south Korean movie industry comes out with is one of the most uninhibited, creative and I feel craziest plots. Here are some of the best as per me:

Old Boy(2003): After being kidnapped and imprisoned for fifteen years, Oh Dae-Su is released, only to find that he must find his captor in five days (Inspired the hindi movie Zinda).

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0364569/?ref_=nv_sr_2

I saw the Devil (2010): A secret agent exacts revenge on a serial killer through a series of captures and releases (Inspired the Hindi Movie Ek Villain).

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1588170/?ref_=nv_sr_1

The Man from Nowhere (2010):A quiet pawnshop keeper with a violent past takes on a drug-and-organ trafficking ring in hope of saving the child who is his only friend (Officially remade in Hindi as Rocky Handsome).

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1527788/?ref_=nv_sr_1

A Bittersweet Life (2005): Things go wrong for a high ranking mobster when he doesn't proceed by his boss's orders (Inspired the Hindi movie Awaarapan).

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0456912/?ref_=tt_rec_tt.

Forgotten (2017): When his abducted brother returns seemingly a different man with no memory of the past 19 days, Jin-seok chases after the truth behind the kidnapping. (A twist you wont see coming)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7057496...1?ref_=nv_sr_1

The Night Comes for Us (2018) :Ito (Joe Taslim), a gangland enforcer, caught amidst a treacherous and violent insurrection within his Triad crime family upon his return home from a stint abroad. (The Riad movies were child's play compared to this)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6116856...1?ref_=nv_sr_1

Ju-on: The Grudge (2002):A mysterious and vengeful spirit marks and pursues anybody who dares enter the house in which it resides. (No other horror film has spooked me as much this)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0364385/?ref_=tt_sims_tt

The Lives of Others (2006): n 1984 East Berlin, an agent of the secret police, conducting surveillance on a writer and his lover, finds himself becoming increasingly absorbed by their lives.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0405094...1?ref_=nv_sr_1

A New World (2013): An undercover cop finds it difficult to play both a cop and a goon. Stylish, poignant and one of the best movies after Infernal Affairs on Undercover cops.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2625030/?ref_=tt_rec_tt

Memories of Murder (2003): In a small Korean province in 1986, three detectives struggle with the case of multiple young women being found raped and murdered by an unknown culprit.
If you liked Zodiac you will love this one and the ending.. ghosh!!

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0353969/?ref_=nv_sr_2

Some honourable mentions:
The Chaser (2008) :A disgraced ex-policeman who runs a small ring of prostitutes finds himself in a race against time when one of his women goes missing.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1190539/?ref_=tt_rec_tt

Lady Vengeance (2005) : After being wrongfully imprisoned for thirteen years and having her child taken away from her, a woman seeks revenge through increasingly cruel and brutal means.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0451094/?ref_=tt_rec_tt

Not a movie, but the series Dark (German) on Netflix is fantastic! Love the rich cinematography - the way it's been shot is incredible. The plot has a bit too much science fiction thrown in for my liking but it weaves several storylines together very nicely.
