(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best foreign movies and TV streaming right now.)
New year, new foreign movies and shows to add to your ever-growing queue! If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to become more cultured, then look no further than Pop Culture Imports, where I recommend all the best titles you can watch with subtitles. But it’s not all European arthouse films — this week we have an array of movie and TV shows of all genres, including Guillermo del Toro‘s masterful dark fairy tale Pan’s Labyrinth, a harrowing and human political drama about a former Uruguayan president’s years in prison, a wacky video game anime, a lavish K-drama set in Spain, and a quiet Estonian-Georgian anti-war film.
Now let’s fire up those subtitles and get streaming.
