For the Love of Film

In my pursuit of researching the off-beat name of a british comedy that I saw last year, I learned something new today. Foreign comedies take their humor seriously--even the film TITLES are funny. Here's a short list of actual foreign films you would think belonged in the Mystery Science Theater Library, but are really very highly rated movies:

  • My Left Eye Sees Ghosts
  • Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl
  • Songs From the Second Floor
  • Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself
  • Attack the Gas Station!
  • God is Brazilian
  • Kung Fu Mahjong
  • Running on Karma
  • Driving Miss Wealthy
  • The Day of The Wacko

That last one is Polish, and according to english-speaking netflix subscribers, the DVD says it has english subtitles on the DVD and in the menu, but they don't work!

How very Polish of them.
