Wait, you give ***** ratings? Everything I thought I knew is a lie. Some Like It Hot is still better though.

The Lady Eve

The French, They Are a Funny Race is one of the best titles ever and I need someone to tell me it is excellent so I can watch it.

There are only 24 ***** features and no ****1/2. That’s how strongly I feel about them.

City of God, the only masterpiece ever made in another tongue. :P

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

They speak Italian in The Godfather.

My Top 100 has 18 non-English films, plus another film in English and Italian.

I insist my masterpieces have at least have three spoken languages. Bonus points for fictional languages.

Princess Mononoke is in Japanese. Rules of the Game in frog language. I think I'm fine.
