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 have already seen the trailer for Shaolin Soccer, several times - I know what to expect, and I don't expect I'll be disappointed. And Kung-Fu Hustle also looks fantastic.

So, Infernal Affairs it is then, that's that sorted! Off to watch now with all speed.
