We’re coming up on the end of the year, and the time when most outlets and critics have released their best of the year lists. Among the usual suspects are a few foreign-language films you’ve never heard of (and no, we’re not talking about Minari), or that might’ve slipped you by. Well, never fear! This week’s Pop Culture Imports is dedicated to those hidden gems, those best international films of the year that you can stream before the year is done.

We’re coming in right under the wire for our spooky season recommendations on Pop Culture Imports, but this Halloweekend, check out a few subtitled (or straight up silent) horror movies in addition to your old favorites. This week we have a French suspense film that was a major inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, two disturbing Korean horror films, a German Expressionist classic, and a French revolutionary take on the zombie genre.

In this week’s Pop Culture Imports, we have quite a collection of international movies, from the critically acclaimed to the wildly controversial. The latter of which was a controversy that I was reluctant to wade into, but this is a column sharing the best in international titles, and that film at the center of the controversy falls into that category. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, and didn’t click on this column just because of one of the films in the headline, well, you’ll find out soon enough.

So fire up those subtitles, and let’s get streaming.

Love, or heartbreak, is in the air, depending on what foreign-language film or show you’re watching from this week’s Pop Culture Imports column. Is there a reason for the selection of romance-themed titles? Who can say? But whatever the case, it’s time to bask in the middle-aged heartbreak of the best Claire Denis-Juliette Binoche collaboration Let the Sunshine In, or watch two hustlers fall in love in Audrey Tatou’s Priceless. Or turn to the other side of the hemisphere to watch a romantic-comedy anime like Toradora! Whatever strikes your fancy (if your fancy is fancying someone), it’s there to stream.

So let’s fire up those subtitles, and get streaming.

Somehow, we’re nearing the tail end of summer and the pandemic situation doesn’t seem like it will change all that much. But at the very least, streaming services won’t run out of new content anytime soon. And while new entertainment may start to dry up in the states, we can always import a few international titles to keep us going. In this week’s Pop Culture Imports, the best foreign movies and TV shows include the finale to Donnie Yen’s beloved Ip Man series, an engrossing Iranian drama with a heavy dose of magical realism, a new rom-com series for foodies, and more.

We’ve got an animation-heavy column for you in this week’s Pop Culture Imports, but if you’re looking for bright, family-friendly fare, they won’t be here. What is it with foreign filmmakers using animation as a medium through which to work through some of the most traumatic events (fictional or otherwise) in history? That’s a question for another day, but meanwhile let’s have a look at the best foreign movies and TV streaming now, which include war-torn refugee films Funan and Adú, a disaster anime series from Netflix, and a deadpan heist film from Romania.

With businesses re-opening and the sun shining, it’s probably tempting to go out and enjoy the summer right now.

This week’s Pop Culture Imports includes a sumptuous Pedro Almodóvar mother-daughter tale, a whimsical original anime movie on Netflix, Jan Švankmajer‘s unsettling stop-motion take on Alice in Wonderland, an edgy 2019 remake of an Osamu Tezuka ronin classic, and a Chilean drama that finally gives Lost breakout Jorge Garcia the leading man role he deserves.
