Here's a paradox: If no one goes to see foreign films anymore, why are some of them posting record attendance figures? Predictions of the foreign-language film's demise in the U.S. seem to alternate with reports of record-breaking grosses for subtitled films. Each time there's a lull in the quality and quantity of imported films, it suddenly turns around again and a major hit like the current bittersweet Italian fable "Life Is Beautiful" revives the audience's appetite.

ACCORDING to Metacritic.com, a website that tracks critical reaction to current films, one of the five best-reviewed movies of 2005 -- right up there with "Capote" and "Brokeback Mountain" -- is "Cache," a provocative drama by the respected Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke. The film earned raves from Time, Newsweek, Roger Ebert, USA Today, our paper and Entertainment Weekly, which called it a "fabulously unsettling, doesn't-leave-your-head thriller."

"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" could be demonized by "Evil Dead" at the box office this weekend as the horror film aims to possess No. 1. After debuting with $40.5 million, the action sequel will likely take in an additional $20 million during its second weekend in theaters, according to those who have seen pre-release audience surveys. That will put the film in a tight race for the top spot against "Evil Dead," which is poised to start off with a solid sum of between $20 million and $25 million.
