I was particularly proud to see 'Let the Right One In' up there, as it is fantastic. (As is the book, but that is another story entirely.) I would only hope to add the Korean action/western film 'The Good, the Bad, the Weird', which is one of the things I like best in the history of things I like. As the name suggest, it is indeed partly based on the classic 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly', but I find it is original enough to stand on its own, and simply too good to be tossed away for that reason. Brilliant actors, brilliant filming and an absolutely luminous row of purely epic action sequences. On a similar note; the Swedish 'Millennium-trilogy' (also known as 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo-series) is also very good, as are, of course, most everything from Studio Ghibli.

Unforgettable ending. Intelligent, but easy to follow for foreign audiences.

I also think that african cinema should be given their due respect, especially the south-african movie culture. My favs are: Gangster's Paradise: Jerusalema: Based on the true story of a south-african crime boss who started occupying apartment blocks in the zone of Jerusalema. Tsotsi: Oscar awarded flick about a young criminal who, after hijacking a car, find the owners newborn child in the back seat. District 9: A partly hilarious, but also gripping sci-fi movie directed by Peter Jackson (Lord Of The Rings) which takes place in Johannesburg Hijack Stories: The story of an aspiring actor who tries to gain experience for his role as a criminal in a tv show by tagging along his former school friend who hijack cars. I just hope these movies get the respect and audience they deserve! Hey, great list!

Have you ever seen the Pusher series or Gomorrah yet? If not , put down your Kurosawa  elitism.  

What’s the matter of not mentioning a lot flicks before 1990?
