For me, some of the best cinema is coming,and has come, from of the east - Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Thailand etc. So, to partly feed my obsession and get some recommendations, I thought I'd start this thread for recommendations, suggestions, questions etc.
And I am going to start with a recommendation.

Go see KUNG-FU HUSTLE...it is so far (and probably going to be) my film of the year. Most fun film I've seen since...well probably Chow's last one Shoalin Soccer..

And a question. Has anyone seen Miike's MPH-PSYCHO series yet..are they worth buying

I know exactly what you mean. I was really gutted when Miyazaki started becoming popular.

Aaah but wasn't it satisfying, when someone would rave about Spirited Away and you would turn around and say "aaah but its not as good as.." and you would list as many films of his as possible biggrin.gif
