Who has the second-richest film tradition in the world? Everyone knows the USA is #1, US invented cinema and pioneered everything in it.

Who has the next richest film tradition? Japanese film is a treasurehouse, but is the Japanese film tradition richer than France's? To some extent this calculation must depend on taste. Some people tend to like French film more, some Japanese. The French, however, do have some significant factors in their favor. The French claim to cinema greatness goes back as far as cinema itself, and has been a pretty much unbroken chain of excellence. (Excepting, perhaps, the WWII period. Even during WWII, they produced "Children of Paradise.") Japanese cinema's significant history starts in the early 1930s. While there are fine Japanese films from that era, Japanese film really geared up during the early 1950s, and then produced a lengthy string of fine films from many directors through the 70s. The 80s and 90s, however, have been a less productive period for Japanese films. (Unless you're on of those who regards anime as the peak of cinematic achievement.) They've made some films worth watching, but they've experienced a truly fallow period, in my opinion. The French, on the other hand, while not perhaps up to their finest periods, continue to produce exceptional films annually.

France, easily, only weebs or rosbifs would say otherwise.

Nothing Japan has produced can rival the French New Wave.

I only like Italian films when they're dubbed in English. Who wants to hear Kirk Douglas, Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, Eli Wallach, Cameron Mitchell, Farley Granger, Jack Palance, Guy Madison, John Saxon and Barry Sullivan dubbed in Italian?

And even when the casts are all Italian, it's a chore listening to them in Italian, because the post-dubbing is so awful. Why is the Italian film industry so repelled by sync-sound recording?
>>

Kitano makes typical gangster flicks with deadpan acting so people assume it's "deep"

He's actually a very mediocre filmmaker.

Except, you know, the whole Japanese Golden Age which literally influenced modern day cinema.

Japanese make the best movies in the world, anyone who disagrees is this guy -
>writes any dissenting opinion off as 'weeb'.
>as if being a weeb is a bad thing

What's the french got?
Traffuat? Goddard?

Japan has -
Kobayashi
Kurosawa
Ozu
Mizoguchi
Honda
Inagaki

There is no competition when you actually think about it.

I actually once tried to make an autistic ranking of country's cinematic output based on a shitty algorithm from the TSPDT top 1000 films I got bored and gave up after 200 but the USA was obviously way out in front, and France was in second, Japan was kind of middle of the pack. I think people forget that outside of the big three Japanese directors, the country is kind of unremarkable cinematically.

I have watched all the Korean movies available to me. I stopped doing it since summer, because the ratio between good and mediocre movies started to go to zero. Personally, I think Korean movie industry is no different from any other country. Every year, a few good movies and million craps. The highest peak (around 00-04) of so-called Korean new wave was already over. Last year was one of the worst years in terms of quality. One good thing is that the wave has produced half dozen good directors worth following.

Why do people try to talk about foreign cinema, when they know nothing about it?

>however, have been a less productive period for Japanese films. (Unless you're on of those who regards anime as the peak of cinematic achievement.

Is probably one of the most wrong things you could say.

I could list a bunch of movies from Japan off the top of my head which trump any American or Eu film that has been released.

Kabukicho Love Hotel - 2014
Himizu - 2011
Dolls - 2002
The Tale of Iya - 2013

If you want to make broad claims like you have, you have to at least know what you are saying. For more movies look at the directors from each of those posted movies. They are very active, and very much above the bar.
