(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best foreign movies and TV streaming right now.)
In this week’s Pop Culture Imports, the French would gladly die for love…and liberty, equality, and a good apartment building. This week’s column is dominated by films that come from the land of baguettes and biting social satire. Some of the best foreign movies and TV streaming now include Luis Buñuel’s surrealist masterpiece, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s bizarre post-apocalyptic black comedy Delicatessen, Roman Polanski’s psychological horror film The Tenant, as well as two collaborative Netflix titles that give refreshing spins on anime and the crime drama.
So, let’s do as Bong Joon-ho says and overcome that one-inch barrier of subtitles to watch the best foreign movies and TV streaming now.
