Those are some great films there! I must say, I haven’t seen most of the foreign ones you listed except for Fucking Åmål. That movie was very good! I’d like to watch it again and pay more attention to it.
I always like to mention the Qatsi trilogy when threads like this come up. They’re not movies in the traditional sense with characters and a plot. They’re meant to show the background of life on planet earth. The first one, Koyaanisqatsi, is a must see for everyone in my opinion. The other two, Powaqqatsi and Naqoyqatsi have great meaning behind them but the first one is enough to get the gist of what the filmmakers want you to feel. Also, the music in them was composed by Phillip Glass, a modern minimalist composer. If any of you have seen The Watchmen, you will immediately recognize the musical style. Glass composed the music for The Watchmen as well.
