    Asian Cinema

    I'm sure there has probably already been a thread about this, but oh well, I'm making a new one.

    Anyways, I saw Battle Royale for the first time last night and I thought it was great. Can anyone else reccomend me some good Asian cinema? I doesn't have to be like BR, but I like stuff thats scary/weird or has a good storyline. Any genre is actually fine with me as long as its good.

    Gosh, where to start...I mostly watch the horror genre, so hopefully someone will be able to recommend movies from other genres, but I like The Eye (they show this on IFC a lot), Audition, A Tale of Two Sisters, the original Ring (Ringu) and Ju-On, Infection. Some other more gory ones I've seen (though I didn't really care for them) are Versus and Ichi the Killer. Returner is more of an action movie, still pretty good. Oh, Uzumaki is also a wierd one. That's all I can think of for now; if I remember anymore, I'll add them in.

    And I remember now, at the top of my lungs in my arms, she dies, she dies.

    Versus is a good choice (I made a thread about it)
    I also reccomend Ichi The Killer but these two were already mentioned.
    Do you like martial arts films? HK legends has some good ones... Also check out http://www.kfccinema.com/ for more asian films

    Infernal Affairs, Old Boy, Audition, Zatoichi (Beat Takeshi version), Hana-Bi, Sonatine, Dolls, Boiling Point, Hard Boiled, Seven Samurai (and a whole lot of other Akira Kurosawa films),...

    Well yeah but that's anime. And I seriously doubt that MoonUnit hasn't seen Akira...

    I recommend "Sassy Girl" LOL Not really something you would expect. It's a cheesy love story at first glance, but with a nice twist.

    I've seen Audition...that movie was messed up. I also bought Tale of Two Sisters, but I haven't watched it yet.

    Anyone ever seen Tetsuno: The Iron Man? I saw that a month ago...seriously crazy movie, reminded me of Eraserhead in that it made no sense whatsoever.

    Thanks for the reccomendations, people.
