What Asian cinema has /tv/ been watching lately?
Overseas at the moment, Ran was on the hotel movie channel. Dad hadn't watched it before and I watched it only recently so I watched it again with him, it's still great as a re-watch although I think the 3rd acts pace is disproportionate to the rest of the 3rd act.
I bought 5 sion sono flicks on blu-ray yesterday although I've seen 3 of them before. Going to sit down and watch Assassin later and am going to a showing of A Touch of Sin on Thursday even though I saw that the first time it came around too.
I've not really kept up with asian cinema this year, would be good to get some recommendations for 2015 releases
Watched The Chaser recently, just seemed weird in my opinion, but I know fuck all about Korea's police laws.
Also are Korean police just incredibly incompetent? I have watched 3 Korean movies, Chaser/MoM/Oldboy
Chaser/MoM are just riddled with corruption and pure stupidity, Oldboy to a much lesser extent.
oh my god
they're not, you're grouping them by continent. people also say european cinema which encompasses 51 different countries and cultures. "asian cinema" is used because ANY form of asian cinema is rarely talked about on here and there's so many asian countries putting out quality films. do you think i should create a thread for every separate country in asia?
South Koreans have very little respect for the police after they were such a tram player for the dictators after the Korean war.
Also very poorly educated until recently, so country side cops were probably quite incompetent.
Posting in every Asian cinema thread until you watch his entire filmography.
