People are still talking about the first-ever non-English language movie to win the Best Picture award at the 92nd Academy Awards. That movie is none other than Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite. The South Korean director, Bong Joon-ho, stood out during the 2020 Oscars as he took home not just one, but four Academy Awards! Aside from the Best Picture award, Parasite won the Academy Awards for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film. This has surprised a lot of viewers, but we can’t complain since this South Korean film certainly deserves the four victories. In fact, it has also been recognized in some of the biggest movie awards like Golden Globe Awards and British Academy Film Awards.

While many non-native English speakers are watching movies in English language, there are also native English speakers who watch something foreign to them. However, the audience for non-English language movies is not as large as the number of viewers for English-language films. So, as the Parasite gets recognized, you may want to open your door for some best international movies you can stream right now in English. Just like what Bong Joon-ho said during his speech at the Golden Globes, you’ll get to discover many more amazing films if you already get used to dealing with reading subtitles while watching foreign-language movies. The success of Parasite may be a game-changer for the film industry since international movies can now potentially get a wider audience. So, if you want to discover some of the best foreign films aside from Parasite, we've got you covered. Check out this list we've prepared below and stream these movies now in English!

    "Not really into non-english language movies but after seeing a lot of great films created by non-native speakers of English, I tried checking other films like parasite and this and to my surprise, both are really good so its now the time that international movies get more recognitions from people from all over the world just like how we recognize hollywood movies"
