Essential World/Foreign Films
The very best foreign films--or at the very least, Jürgen's list of favorite world films.

Top Anime DVDs
There are plenty of folks who still equate Japanese animation with "Pokemon" and can't get used to the flat faces and weird storylines. But the plunge is worth taking.

Gilles Paquet-Brenner's Sarah's Key, adapted from the novel by Tatiana de Rosnay), tells the story of Sarah, a ten-year-old girl who is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door-to-door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night during World War II.
