this is literally what i was going to type out, but add Pan's Labyrinth. Closest thing to a perfect movie that I've ever seen. I can not think of one thing that I'd change about it.

Also, several of Herzog's films are up there, namely Aguirre: Wrath of God and Cobra Verde. Check those out if you haven't.

who are you and where have you been? we need people with good taste on this board

ETA: Forgot Seventh Seal . I'm getting CT/HD and Hero in from Netflix tomorrow. Haven't watched them in a few years and cant wait to watch them again. ill start a thread. come discuss

I remember hero being a tad self indulgent so I have it at number 2 as well

Finally watched this about 2 months ago. What an awesome movie. I can't imagine a film like that ever getting the green light these days. Apparently there was a lot of improvisation, and the actors looked like they were in legit danger being on that river.

Would choose Once Upon a Time in the West, but that's kind of cheating since it had so many Americans in key roles. If I have to choose one legit foreign flick, I'll go Seven Samurai. I know it's kind of a typical choice, but it's a legit all time great.

Kinski MURDERED in all of his work that he did with Herzog. He is just great.

The two were crazy

Probably that, though I'm no foreign film aficionado. It's just a great film all around; probably the only time I've been engrossed enough to forget I'm even reading subtitles.
