Rated over 3000 movie, documentaries, and shorts, plus 20 mini-series, and I have seen each one (unlike many others who rate without seeing). Out of my rated ten movies, one-quarter are foreign. Out of my rated one 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 happily note I have discriminated sufficiently, so my reviews contain only 103 tens (3.3%) of my total 3071 rated items. Movies can be wonderful, do not have to be of a certain genre, and, especially, do not have to end happily.

My Favorite Foreign Films (So Far)
a list of 48 titles
Having rated over 3000 films and having regularly watched movies for 44 of my 58 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.
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 of foreign language films because I had to reach a 4-rating to get the bottom 10 and there are none rated below a 2. Compare those numbers against my 25 1-rated English language (the standard the Academy uses to determine if foreign language film) films. I note I have rated over 3000 movies so far. As an aside, I proudly note my sufficient discrimination in viewing choices, so I only have 0.81% (25) ones versus 111 tens, 3.3%.
