Yes, I feel the same way about some Czech films. Oh, the good old days of black-and-white, when their Czech was so clear and perfectly pronounced! With the exception of Vlasta Burian, but he's great in other things...
Stop, no more off topic. Wink

You shouldn't have problems watching Dead Man; there's not much dialogue, and the English in it is basic.

I recently had the opportunity to watch The Limits of Control (I'll elaborate elsewhere), without subtitles and I must say that even though I understood most of the dialogue at times I really missed subtitles.

It's just a (bad) habit, trust me. Years ago when I started watching English language movies on DVDs I'd always turn the subtitles on, although I already knew English and I understood 90% of what they were saying, if I didn't turn them on it was like there was something missing, I needed confirmation from the subtitles. So, start gradually with movies that don't use slang and in maybe a month you won't be a subtitle addict anymore.

I guess that depends on how much you know of the language... I think now I'm also able to watch English films without subtitles, but I couldn't do that with Finnish yet... and watching a Saami film (Ofelaš) with Norwegian subtitles left me with a lot to desire in my understanding about the characters' intentions and reasons behind their actions!
