That’s 2 for Seven Samurai. It was indeed a great film, but so much more recent, imo, have surpassed in emotion and story and characters. But SS definite classic and deservedly so. I mean Kurosawa alone makes it an instant classic!

I could have easily listed The Orphanage or Panís Labyrinth for newer foreign films. In fact, if you ask me the same question yesterday or tomorrow, either one of those may very well be my choices.

Yeah both incredible. Loved PL, saw in theater, I believe and I never see foreign in theaters, mainly bc they don’t play them in my theaters. Also, El Orfanato (The Orphanage) surprised the hell out of me and I loved it. Another I kept on shelf for years, even imported DVD from somewhere. This it was a SteelBook. Think I put the blu in it. Ha. But great movie.
