Our year in review party begins TODAY.A different list each day!Here's Nathaniel R...

Time for an annual look back at subtitled fare in cinemas.As with 2017andthe year beforeIndia,China,Mexico,and South Korea dominate with a smattering of Oscar contenders and random other countries faring much less well in the American marketplace.Much of the imbalance is due to dedicated distributors who saw a underserved market and focus specifically on it.Here in Manhattan,it's interesting to watch how this plays out.Generally speaking some big multiplexes reserve one or two screens for super specific distributors (Bollywood and mainstream Asian features for example are often at the Empire in Times Square which has 25 screens).Meanwhile the traditional "arthouse theaters"continue to rely on the decades-long practice of programming festival hits,docs,and arthouse style cinema which leans heavily European with a few buzzy Asian titles thrown in;in other words they're Oscar-aligned in their tastes.

For the purposes of the following list we skipped documentaries and animated films to keep the list more focused (and avoid arguments about dubbed versions or whatnot).The numbers are pulled fromBox Office Mojo.
