Many thanks for all the resources you have shared with us. I wish I could help you with more and more accessible titles, but the following two, are two that I personally enjoyed and watched recently.

El hombre de las mil caras 2016 (Eng: Smoke and Mirrors)

Francisco Paesa — an ex-secret agent for the Spanish government who was instrumental in the most important operation against the Basque terrorist group ETA — is framed by his own government and forced to leave the country. When he is finally able to return to Spain, he is broke and his personal life is falling apart. It is then he receives a visit from Luis Roldán, the powerful former Commissioner of Police who offers him one million dollars to help him safeguard twelve million dollars that were embezzled from the budget he used to control. Paesa’s acute mind will plan revenge in order to seize Roldán’s money, fooling an entire country in a brilliant and intricate operation worthy of the best illusionist.

NOT A MOVIE, BUT A TV SERIES La Casa de Papel (Money Heist)

(Netflix announced in its first quarterly report of 2018 that Money Heist was the most-watched non-English language series ever on their streaming service) The first two parts revolves around a long-prepared, multi-day assault on the Royal Mint of Spain in which a team of people take hostages as part of their plan to print and escape with €2.4 billion.

I'm not learning Russian yet (its next on my list after Czech)... BUT

If you like war movies, then I highly recommend "The White Tiger". I have to watch with subtitles but its a wild ride from start to end. Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever but the ending is so strange I think about it all the time. Is Ivan Naidyonov still out in the Russian swamps hunting the White Tiger? Does he drive, load, and fire the main cannon now? The world will never know for sure!

Great! It became curious to see how the film “D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers” is perceived with the translation, because many years ago, when the French studying Russian, began to watch the film, they laughed at the fact that everyone sings, and in the twentieth minute they got bored. But now, after reviewing the film with the translation, I confirm that it is very useful for study the Russian language, the actors clearly pronounce the words, pure literary Russian, songs are poetry. In modern Russian films you will not find this.

It's a comedy that involves New Years celebrations in Russia. The dialogue is great for learning conversational Russian. It's also funny and has a lot of songs. I believe some of the songs were performed by Sergei Nikitin and you can listen to them on spotify as well.

Oh yes, Solaris. Some people here might have seen a film with the same name with George Clooney. It's based on the same book. However both films are quite different in mood. Soderbergh's is more spectacular and romantic. Tarkovsky's is more sober and psychological. And critics rate it much higher than the American version. Here is a comparison of both films.

I also recommend the "newer" Sherlock Holmes series with Igor Petrenko: Шерлок Холмс (2013). It is vastly different from most other Sherlock Holmes media, but I really enjoyed it. It's on Youtube, but the channel that now has it, doesn't have subtitles.

I also highly support your recommendation of Приключения Шерлока Холмса и доктора Ватсона. I really like Vitaly Solomin as Watson. An excellent version that does a good job maintaining the spirit of the original Doyle Canon.

Еще слева от шестеренки может быть кнопка "субтитры" (такой белый прямоугольник с черными дырочками), она должна быть включена (подчеркнута красным).
