Asian Cinema & Me

A catalogue of all of the films I have seen from countries inside the continent of Asia. Who needs the cinema of any other continent when you've got beautiful Japanese anime, disgusting Japanese torture porn, melodramatic Korean melodramas and high flying Cantonese kung fu flicks?

Recommendations are always more than welcome, so feel free to shoot some at me. As long as they're Asian of course!
