A foreign film forum

I know there are a lot of people out there that would like a forum to discuss non-mainstream(er .. American) movies. At first I was thinking of requesting a Takeshi Kitano forum but that would get rather stale fast.
I mean there's a music forum so there could be a foreign film forum as well.

It got my vote.

However would you want it to be limited to Japanese movies or just any foreign film? Since the music forum is just actually for anime music and J-pop/rock/etc etc.

I was just thinking foreign, not just Japanese. Because, well, otherwise it would get pretty boring pretty fast.

Dude, just because something isn't Japanese doesn't mean it's not anime related. Same thing goes two ways, J-pop doesn't exist because anime exists.

Do you actually realise how much the Japanese film industry influences anime, for that matter do you realise how much the global film industry influences anime. Again same thing goes both ways. For instance Berserk caries with it uncanny resemblences with the French legend of Jean d'Arc, I would post this in the Berserk forum. But what if I had a film which was inspired (note inspired not remade) or caries uncanny resemblenses to Berserk.
It also notable to say that certain anime make references to certain movies, some people haven't seen the movies (and a lot of American productions have a foreign counterpart .. er .. predecessor.) and thus are missing out on the subtleties that make certain anime great.

Asside from that the only real reason there is an Anime music forum is because
1. the anime has made that J-pop so dang popular with us geeky anime watching freaks.
2. It's popular in Japan.
I know Japanese/Chinese/and often films in other languages as well are popular with us geeky anime watching freaks. And, well piffle, it seems that Japanese/Chinese films are pretty popular in Japan as well. Asking to extend the courtesy to films of other nationality might actually be a refreshing experience (Gosh, you might actually learn something !), plus we're on an animeboard I know things can go off topic but I don't see how this can spin out of control (God NO ! They're discussing La vita est Bella !!).

And TDM I know you already know all of this, I was just using you to illustrate a point ^_~.

I wanted you to illustrate it. It shows that your request was anime related. I was just lazy.
