    Whats with the webistes? Are you selling them. Showing off because you like some foreign films? Elitist, perhaps? I don't know, your list annoys me.

    Additional information is given about films which maybe not so well-known. I can`t help you if you`re so touchy.

    No, but it is on my "to see" list. In same vein, have you seen "The Orphanage?" ( El Orfanato ) Guillermo del Toro produced it. Almost made my top 20.

    The Devil's Backbone is an amazing movie. It has a slightly different feel to it; darker and more gothic. It's also told through a boy's eyes instead of a girl's (like in Pan's Labyrinth), so that has some effect as well.

    I have not seen the Orphanage. I'll keep it in mind. I do most of my movie-watching during the summer.

    Cheers. I'm going to pop into the video store tomorrow. If you enjoy Gothic horror told though the eyes of a young boy, and you haven't seen it yet, check out "Let the Right One In" (Låt den Rätte Komma in) My favourite movie of 2008.

    Is it not in Spanish? I prefer Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew, or French movies. Or, of course, English.

    My #16 is actually "Battle of Algiers" and everything else is moved down one. I forgot about that. Great film.
