asian cinema

An amalgamation of various genres from across Asia. Ordered chronologically.

I used to really like Hong Sang Soo and Naoko Ogigami's films so I've included almost all of their work. I'm currently intentionally watching films by women or with a female protagonist. I am always down for films featuring Lee Young Ae, Ko Ah Sung, Song Kang Ho, Ha Jung Woo, and I dislike Yoo Ah In but he's an incredible actor so I also won't resist his films.

So far I've watched 52 of listed films.
