Best films made outside the U.S.


My Top 10 Non Hollywood Films

1. The Passion of Joan of Arc - Carl Dreyer
2. Eight and Half - Federico Fellini
3. Stalker - Andrei Tarkovsky
4. La Strada - Federico Fellini
5. Eternity and a Day - Theo Angelopoulos
6. Days and Nights in the Forest - Satyajit Ray
7. Red Beard - Akira Kurosawa
8. Woman in the Dunes - Hiroshi Teshigahara
9. High and Low - Akira Kurosawa
10. Knife in the Water - Roman Polanski

If I include Docs, then "Night and Fog" should be there and "Knife in the Water" will go out...

This is actually my top 10 list anyway, Hollywood or no Hollywood...only someone has to leave space for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", not sure which one will go though...
