Kent Jones really likes Spanglish, so you aren't entirely alone.

Going to use my power of clairvoyance to say the three you didn't watch are Together, Noi, and The Isle.  All three are awesome, The Isle is insanely violent though (just two scenes, but damn).

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
The Fall
Reprise

Need to watch.

Boxing Day, trouble is few people have seen it.

Nobody has mentioned Shaun of the Dead, so I am mentioning it.

Someone else mentioned Memento but I didn't see it on the main list yet.

Also, I just rewatched Primer, and it definitely deserves consideration. The most accurate depiction of the scientific method and scientists I've ever seen in film, and I still get nervous during the last half-hour when everything goes to shit.

Nobody's said City of God yet?

Guess not!  It was one of the first in the Foreign category, but it certainly deserves to be hear as well.
