The best of world cinema

Would these films make your top ten?

By Staff Blogger

Empire magazine has compiled a list of the 100 best films of “world cinema” (by which they mean films not in the English language). It’s interesting to note that two of Empire‘s top ten — posted below — also made our list of the 10 greatest political films, but would any of them have made your list? What have they missed? Tell us in the comments thread.

1. Seven Samurai (1954, Japan)

2. Amelie (2000, France) — click here for an interview with the director, Jean-Pierre Jeunet

3. Battleship Potemkin (1925, Russia)
