The Search for Great New East Asian Films (2013-2016)

Always on the lookout for some juicy picture shows

This list includes East & Southeast Asian films I love (1-40). The rest I have yet to watch and originate from Cambodia (41-43), China (44-63), Hong Kong (64-75), Indonesia (76-83), Japan (84-142), Malaysia (143-144), the Philippines (145-169), Singapore (170-172), South Korea (173-207), Taiwan (208-218), Thailand (219-223) and Vietnam (224-230).

Finally 231 - 257 are films I didn't personally like very much but who am I to withhold these works.

Not on Letterboxd:
Nay (Djenar Maesa Ayu, 2015)
Super X. (Nguyen Quang Dung, 2015)
