I did like Michael Nyman's music score.

I do agree about Betty Blue.

Funny, I do the opposite. I turn the sound down and just watch the visuals. The Pillow Book was another one I liked.
Yeah.... Beatrice Dalle

The French movie with Bellucci and Cassell - L'Apartement, was quirkily interesting. Didn't Hollywood re-make it? And how do they compare?

Man Bites Dog - loved that.
Last Tango... too.

I'd say yes

I forgot to include gems such as Argento's masterful films. I also liked Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetery man in the USA edition).

Aguirre

Insomnia

Spoorloos (The Vanishing)

Breaker Morant (actually Australian, but I really like it, so I'm including it)

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Layer Cake

Sexy Beast

Good call on Das Boot. Regarding Irreversible and I Stand Alone, I imagine I could stomach them, but I'm not sure I want to.

Wasn't Sexy Beast an Australian film? I thought it was terrific. The performance by Ben Kingsley was absolutly out of this world and so different for him. Also Rocco e Suoi Fratelli. Anything by Visconti really, but they can be tiresome to watch.
