Top 5 Films Without Repeating a Language or Country

by Sebastian Nebel

Name your Top 5 films without repeating a language or country of origin.

That was the challengeI posed on Twitterlast month.It's tricky enough to limit your favorites to a specific number,and I was interested in seeing what kind of responses this added degree of difficulty would garner.

Turns out Twitter loves making lists!I got a ton of replies – way too many to collect all of them here,unfortunately.But I've rounded up a handful of them after the jump including lists by亚博主页contributors,film critics and film makers...

The Good,the Bad and the Ugly (Il buono,il brutto,il cattivo)

Pedro Party: All About My Mother

It's a Pedro Party all week.Here's Lynn Lee on her introduction to Almodóvar...

To all actresses who have played actresses.  To all women who act.  To men who act and become women.  To all the people who want to be mothers.  To my mother."

All About My Motherwas the first Almodovar film I ever saw,and as it happens,I saw it with my own mother.  I don't remember why I picked it for us to see together.  It certainly wasn't because of the title or because I thought it would be something she'd particularly like.  In fact,if I'd thought about it more,I might have been anxious that she would find it too outré.  Or for that matter,thatIwould;as both a movie lover and a young adult,I was just beginning to learn what was out there and how far it stretched beyond my own personal experience.

To our credit,or rather to Almodovar's,there was no reason for such trepidation...

Pedro Party: The Music of Alberto Iglesias

We're celebrating Pedro Almodóvar all week.Here'sChris Feilon Pedro's standby composer...

Here at The Film Experience,亚博主页ruminating on Pedro Almodóvar's list of frequent collaborators would most likely find an actress's name come up first.But aside from his onscreen talent,there is one now prolific relationship the director has that's equally worth celebrating: composer Alberto Iglesias.

The Almodóvar/Iglesias collaboration is now ten films deep,dating back to 1995‘sThe Flower of My Secretwithout a single gap film since.His work is inextricable from what Almodóvar creates on screen,a cohesive piece of the melodrama that enhances the tone rather than defining it.Let's discuss five favorites from his work after the jump...

7 Days Til Oscar.Dallas Buyers Club & AIDS Pictures

Unless I've missed a random nomination somewhere -- and you may correct me gently in the comments if I have --  it occurs to me thatDallas Buyers Clubis the seventh non-documentary motion picture with a prominent HIV/AIDS story to receive Oscar nominations.(There have been more films with supporting characters who were living with HIV,but these are the major films that are more focused on it*).

Oscar's history with this feature topic stretches back 23 years through one Best Picture nominee,a pre-McConaughey Best Actor,two foreign films,and 1990'sLongtime Companionafter the jump
