Another version of Exiled! is the basic premise that you are exiled to a small country with no media or comunications and must live there three years doing good works like the Peace Corps. For reasons of good will you cannot take any US movies with you but can take only ten non-US movies to last the whole three years.
You have to choose movies that can be watched many times because that’s your only entertainment. The local paper is printed in Slambangatongan, which you can’t read and comes out only once a month.
My list in response to his question was:
1. Heaven and Earth (Japanese film on feudal Japan… gorgeous!)
2. Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
3. The Wind Will Carry Us
4. Clockwork Orange
5. Dancing at Lughnasah
6. The Boxer
7. Michael Collins
8. Waking Ned Devine
10. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (actually, all the pythons)
