    are there any foreign films (regardless of where you live) that you'd like to see that are planned to be distributed in your country, but haven't found a distributor yet?
    i only know of one, and it's one that i REALLY want to see and can't understand why it hasn't found a distributor yet. it's called "To End All Wars." you can find out more about it here and at the official site.
    maybe it's because of the "war movie fatigue" that no major studio wants to pick this up.

    I'm sure that you could get some yeas for "Battle Royale."

    Oh, and the original "Ring."

    And about fifty zillion movies that aren't horror flix from Japan.

    Korea's My Sassy Girl. It's a better romantic comedy than anything out of Hollywood in the last 10 years.

    How about Withnail & I?
    I saw this while in England. Pretty charming. Richard Grant makes a good sissy boy actor.

    Code Unknown one of best films of the last few years.
    I don't know if Songs From The 2nd Floor ever got distribution, but I know it never played in Atlanta.
    All of Kiyoshi Kurosawa's films Cure, Pulse, Charisma

    Both CODE UNKNOWN and CURE had distributors (Cowboy Pictures for the latter; I forget the former, maybe Kino) and played Portland.

    Lee Jeong-hyang's Jibeuro (The Way Home) until recently did not have a U.S. distributor. I just found out the Paramount classics has now obtained the U.S. distribution rights. Hopefully, this one will get a stateside release soon.

    every foreign film isn't good, and the foreign distributors should know which battles to pick by now.
