Foreign films

The Guardian readers' choice of top 40 foreign language films make a strange, bland, list. Imagine a Guardian-reading couple watching a DVD together while eating a take-away on a Friday evening and drinking a nice glass of wine. The mere fact that my lifestyle resembles this image does not disqualify me from sneering at it. Amelie? It's a nice enough film, but please. I'm not even going to copy the list into my blog.

Ten of my favourite foreign-language films:

- Sacrifice (Tarkovsky)
- Yojimbo (Kurasawa)
- The Seventh Seal (Bergman)
- Das Boot (Peterson)
- Spirited Away (Miyazaki)
- Crouching Tiger (Ang Lee)
- Y Tu Mama Tambien (Cuaron)
- Infernal Affairs (Lau + Mak)
- Ringu (Nakata)
- Festen (Vinterberg)

There's probably a bunch more I should have put ahead of these, they are just the first ten that came to mind.
