I have admittedly not seen many foreign films throughout my lifetime, but it is something that I have been meaning to start to try and get into. I truly do have an interest in seeing the differences between each country and nationalities and how their films differ from one another.

You should. Most of the more original movies I have seen are foreign films. Many countries let their filmmakers test boundaries and subject matter that would never be touched in American films. I'm all about seeing something new and different.

Holy Motors is one bizarre film. It's really weird.

Does anyone else have a problem with U.K films being considered foreign in this thread?

I get that, but it's just silly. If that's the case I can name about 100 movies that are just "foreign" but are from the UK.
