Unfortunately it's not dubbed.
I actually think it's a bug area of improvements for services like Netflix - add dubbing.

Not sure if this was mentioned before but "my Italian secret" is an excellent documentary about Jewish people returning to meet again the Italians families that saved their lives while risking their own during WWII.

I've been binge watching Nikita, Reckless and Transporter and enjoying those.

DW and I watched 12 Mile Road (2003 with Tom Selleck) the other night and enjoyed that.

That's a shame. You'll miss out on a lot of really fine international movies and series.

I even use subtitles for Brit and Aussie shows. To each his own.

Personally, I would much rather watch a subtitled movie than a dubbed one. Hearing the language and intonation puts the story in context for me.

agreed - have you ever watched the dubbed version of Das Boot? I'd rather hear them scream "alarm!" in german with a subtitle.

Spoken language is fascinating to me. I enjoy a subtitled movie easily in any language other than Spanish, which I am almost fluent in but not quite fluent enough to understand the dialog, so my brain is fighting between thinking in Spanish and reading the subtitles in English. I would do pretty good reading subtitles in Spanish, or turning the sound off and watching with only subtitles. I tried to watch the Spanish-language "Grand Hotel" series (which interestingly Netflix translated the title into English from the original 'Gran Hotel", why?) but couldn't make it work. But I don't know if I really hear the same level of lyricism in a language I am fluent in vs one I rarely hear.

Old (1978) but very good, The Deer Hunter. Walken, Streep, De Niro. Apocalypse Now came the year after.

Barbara (2012) is a German movie about an East German doctor who is banished to a small village after trying to escape to the West.

4 stars.

^^ Re Barbara, I watched it and liked it. I am a sucker for cold war stuff (been to GDR, got the T-shirt, married a Ukrainian eventually).

I often have Spanish subtitles on to English language shows - leftover from when I was watching a lot of Spanish shows. One show with international actors with marginal English speaking skills - the Spanish subtitles helped me understand what they were trying to say in English.

For the particular show (Marco Polo) - they were some of the best English to Spanish translations I have ever read.

If you switch the Spanish program subtitles to Spanish, you'll be amazed how much that helps.

Superfast - a Fast and the Furious parody with a pretty spot on Vin Diesel. Terrible. Loved it.

This is a really great suspense movie in DVD and streaming The Numbers Station:

If you have Hulu, Line of Duty is a really great British police story with two seasons of 5-6 episodes each. It's about the police anti- corruption unit and the actors are wonderful.
