Marc ~

I have no idea why I chose the word "oriental" instead of Asian. Hell, I've even read a couple of issues of "Asian Cult Cinema" magazine lately...

Perhaps I was disoriented?

I take it no one knows who I'm asking about then,however; this was a real turning point of the genre for me adding a more plasible aspect of the real world look to it for me. Finding tonights meal as a begger or finding a bed if your a fugitive these are real.

"Oriental" was an interesting choice. Why not "Asian"?

Joalco - I don't believe I've seen any of those films. I enjoyed the only Korean film I've seen, 301/302, and Edward Yang's stuff blows me away, especially A BRIGHTER SUMMER DAY, but also the more well-known and widely seen YI-YI. THE ORPHAN OF ANYANG, from mainland China, is an impressive first film by Chao Wang, and Kiyoshi Kurosawa is a Japanese film maker to watch. I've seen his CURE, and can't wait to see more of his work. My sentimental favorite is Wu Tian Ming's THE KING OF MASKS.

How many of you folks are interested in modern Chinese / Japanese / Korean cinema? Over the last five years, I've gotten a little more entrenched.

Here are some current favorites, discuss amongst yourselves...

Battle Royale
The Ring / The Ring Virus
God of Cookery / Shaolin Soccer
Tell Me Something
