Valuable list. Lots of titles with which I was unfamiliar for me to hunt down.
No Ingmar Bergman or Powell & Pressburger?
That was a pretty arbitray list of films I've rated 10 on IMDb. I do find it difficult to assign a definitive numerical value to every film I see. I do it in an effort to keep some sort of record, but find myself constatntly adjusting. I think I currently have Bergman's Persona, Cries and Whispers, Through a Glass Darkly and The Silence as well as P&P's Black Narcissus rated 9. Needless to say I greatly admire the work I've seen from both.
My command of any language other than English is limited to dimly-remembered high school Spanish, so my preference for any foreign language film is a subtitled one. If you're watching a picture with a dialogue track that's replaced the original one, you're missing half the performance of any of its players, which does a disservice to each of them.
I guess it's an unavoidable occupational hazard for actors whose films are distributed internationally, but I can imagine few things causing more chagrin than knowing that people you've never heard of in France, or Italy, or Brazil, Austria, China, Japan, India or wherever are changing the performance you gave.
