3.  Kung Fu Hustle [DVD] [2005] DVD ~ Stephen Chow

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (91 customer reviews)

13 Tzameti [DVD] [2006]
4.  13 Tzameti [DVD] [2006] DVD ~ George Babluani

4.24   Used & New from: 0.01
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Spoorloos / The Vanishing [DVD]
5.  Spoorloos / The Vanishing [DVD] DVD ~ Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu
The list author says:
  "When I first seen this film it haunted me for several months after.  It has to be watched if for nothing else other than to see how much the American remake missed the mark."
20.69   Used & New from: 12.50
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Battle Royale [DVD] [2001]
6.  Battle Royale [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Tatsuya Fujiwara
The list author says:
  "You need to watch this twice to get a handle on the characters because it is so fast paced it's difficult to follow at times.  The pace simply adds to a relentless thrill ride."
7.26   Used & New from: 1.14
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (213 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Oldboy [DVD] [2003]
7.  Oldboy [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Choi Min-Sik

10.00   Used & New from: 3.05
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (155 customer reviews)

Ong Bak (2 Disc Special Collector's Edition) [DVD] [2003]
8.  Ong Bak (2 Disc Special Collector's Edition) [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Tony Jaa
The list author says:
  "For sheer fun, this must be one of the best action films of all time.  It's a real throw-back to the eighties with slow-mo's, replays and outrageous explosions it taps into the wow factor through out."
2.50   Used & New from: 0.03
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (75 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Young Master [DVD]
9.  The Young Master [DVD] DVD ~ Jackie Chan

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Run Lola Run [DVD] [2000]

Amelie [DVD] [2001]
11.  Amelie [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Audrey Tautou
