Help me reconstruct the Foreign aisle of Blockbuster from about 1993



Come with me for a moment in my mental time machine. It's 1993 and a 17-year-old me is browsing Blockbuster with his newfound ability to rent R-rated videos. I happen upon the "Foreign" aisle (actually more like a shelf) and I'm intrigued. So I rent a few, and they are unlike any movies I've seen before. A few titles and memories:

  • Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down! (Spanish): I knew I wanted to watch this one because it was written up in Newsweek as having copious nudity, provided by the beautiful but crazy Victoria Abril. It might be the first movie I ever watched where I had to rely on subtitles. Girl falls in love with her kidnapper and they have sex. "Don't laugh, it'll slip out!"

  • Jamn Jamn (Spanish): More Spanish people acting super weird. Dueling with legs of ham! The father of the protagonist meets Penelope Cruz for the first time in the midst of an emergency and they hook up! This movie gave me a taste for the weirdness of European cinema more than any other.

  • Delicatessen (French): French weirdness this time, just unintelligible mostly. I remember a lot of people digging around in the walls of an apartment and lots of butchering.

  • Man Bites Dog (Belgian): Wow what a movie. I've watched it many many times since. Just a satire on everything modern: the media, popular culture, violence, crime. Brilliantly done.

  • Sirens (Australian/UK): This was from 1994, again with copious nudity. Don't remember the story but dem tiddies tho.

I realize my memory is not pure since I recall seeing Irma Vep on the shelf, but after googling I see it was a 1996 release. Either I rented it later or saw it through partially-descrambled cable at some point. There was some R-rated Japanese anime like "Legend of the Overfiend" that I rented but wasn't too interested in. Also Peter Jackson's Bad Taste that I walked by so many times that I finally had to rent it.

Now to my request: Help me mentally reconstruct that Blockbuster shelf from 1993-1994. What else would have been there that I'm forgetting?
