Stream Them Now: Watch 18 Best Foreign Language Oscar Winners Online

"Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"

Foreign films too seldom get the U.S. distribution they deserve. Even those that manage to win the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film are often difficult to find. But for those who are looking forward to the upcoming 2014 Academy Awards, we've compiled a list of foreign films that have achieved not only Oscar glory, but a strong enough place in mainstream culture to earn them online distribution (directed by cinematic geniuses that include Akira Kurosawa, Federico Fellini and Ang Lee). Note that we've previously featured 11 Best Foreign Language Oscar Winners streaming on Netflix. The list below also features films on Hulu and Amazon.

    It would be awesome if you would indicate which platform each of these films is streaming on (eg. NF, Amazon or Hulu).
