Over 2500 movies rated, and I have seen each one (unlike many others who rate without seeing). Out of my rated "10" movies, one-quarter are foreign. Out of my rated "1" movies, all are American, and all made since 1986. Fifty-three of my 103 tens are made before 1986. I am not sure what conclusions can be drawn. I will say that I am glad that I have been sufficiently discriminating in my movie selection to have 4.4% tens. Movies can be wonderful, do not have to be of a certain genre, and, especially, do not have to end happily.

My Bottom 10 of Foreign Language Films
a list of 11 titles
Really it is my Bottom 11 because there was a tie. It was difficult doing such a list because I had to go up to a 4 rating to get the 10 and none below a 2 rating. Comparing such numbers against English language films (the standard the Academy uses to determine if foreign language film), I have 25 films with a 1 rating, all in English. I should note I have rated over 2600 movies so far.
My Favorite Foreign Films (So Far)
a list of 48 titles
Having rated over 2000 films and having regularly watched movies for 38 of my 52 years, I decided to put my top 48 from my 9 and 10 ratings. My favorite foreign directors are Akira Kurosawa and Pedro Almodovar, but my list extends far beyond them.
