What does foreign mean exactly in this context?

Hi Pibby,

I meant to say, non-english language and non-english country production.

I was wondering about The Impossible, which is mostly in English.

There are also higher rated films than this one, such as some of Pencho's suggestions.

Pibby,

I have made some updates to my list.

My list was based on IMDb Top 1000 list.

https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?ti...

List is sorted by IMDb ratings.

And my other "Foreign Movie" lists are based on IMDb Top 1000 list.

Is there a minimum of votes? or how did you choose the titles on the list. If I look for the highest rated movies in different languages, I can find several widely seen and better rated than those on your list.

For example: Contratiempo - 8.1, Roma - 7.8, Capharnäum - 8.4, Kis Ukyusu - 8.2, Amour - 7.9, Tropa de Elite 2 - 8.0, Dag II - 9.0, Manbiki kazoku - 8.0, Gisaengchung - 8.5

Although I didn't look beyond this list like Pencho did, I had a similar thought. I'd suggest noting, in the intro, how you're defining "top rated:" I'm assuming you mean IMDb ratings, not the critics, which is different. I'd briefly note that and also address Pencho's question about a minimum of votes and such.

Good poll, Dibby.
