Das Experiment [DVD] [2002]

Pan's Labyrinth (2 Disc Set) [2006] [DVD]
3.  Pan's Labyrinth (2 Disc Set) [2006] [DVD] DVD ~ Doug Jones
The list author says:
  "A cross between a war film and a fairytale. It's brutal and you'll never look at a broken bottle the same way again."

Oldboy [DVD] [2003]
6.  Oldboy [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Choi Min-Sik
The list author says:
  "I've put this here to represent the entire 'Vengance Trilogy', but all three are equally great. Worth a watch just for the long tracking shot of  Oh Dae-su fighting twenty guys with a claw hammer."

Dawn of the Dead [DVD] [2004]

City Of God (Cidade De Deus) [DVD] [2003]

Battle Royale [DVD] [2001]
