I hope you find some movies here you like. I've tried to pick under-watched movies with the most wide appeal. I have plenty of favorites that are Italian, French, Japanese, Chinese ... But I know that so many moviegoers won't bother with subtitles.

The Tao of Steve & Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels are 2 movies that I really enjoyed. There are a few on here that I have yet to see. You have sparked my interest ... Guess Im off to go see them, now. Thank you for the list!

That is a good list. Many I have not seen. Another good movie by the people who made "Memento" is "Following". I believe the latter is a much better movie.
