This list reminds me of what Peter von Bagh once said. He'd been invited to Japan, and asked which particular films he wanted to see during his visit. He told his hosts, to their great surprise, that he wants to see as many _mediocre_ films as possible. He had to explain that he wanted to learn to "read" Japanese films before watching any ofthe best of the best. (You find Peter in wikipedia and many other sites.)

There are many films I would like to recommend to foreigners -- if they had subtitles in English, that is -- but if you want to learn about Finnish culture and Finn's attitudes, you do indeed need to see a lot of mediocre material.
