Asian Cinema and Me

This list is my memory chart of all the Asian Cinema films and short films I've seen so far.

There's no particular order, the bigger the list has gotten the more difficult it is to keep any kind of order, I try to group by genre within a country but yeah... :)

When I started getting into Asian Cinema, Letterboxd lists were (and still are) incredibly helpful to me in discovering films; so hopefully this list will do the same for other people just starting out.

If you're searching for more specific lists go here:

Contemporary Japan

South Korea

Taiwan

Mainland China

and finally here are some lists for Underseen Asian Films:
