Writer's Block: Subtitles please

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?

I worked for a video store for years, so narrowing this down would be impossible.

I posted this for the second question mostly.

NO, there should NEVER be an American remake. The times that our versions have been fairly decent have been far out-weighed by the times we've completely gutted the damn things. There are so many fine examples of this that I'm not even naming more than one. Point of No Return is my ultimate example of the way we crush awesomeness. America, get over yourselves and learn to read subtitles. Better yet, learn a foreign language so you don't miss some of the best gems in the dialogue that the translator couldn't find a similar phase for. Trust me, it's worth it.
