I love foreign films. That moment when you’re so wrapped up in a movie that you stop reading the subtitles because you feel like you understand the language? Yes, I’m here for that. Riveting foreign films come out all the time, but unfortunately they are usually in limited release here in the U.S. Here is a short list of the best ones 2013 has to offer.
1. The Grandmaster (China)
An epic action feature inspired by the life and times of the legendary kung fu master, Ip Man. His name may not be familiar, but one of his star students was non other then Bruce Lee!

3. I’m So Excited (Mexico)
A technical failure has endangered the lives of the people on board Peninsula Flight 2549 headed to Mexico City. The pilots and their colleagues in the Control Center are striving to find a solution. This comedy can best be described as: Sex & Death.
