Kore'eda and Sono Shion, though very different, are my two favorite contemporary Japanese film makers. They are both poets. Sono is a guerilla style street poet, and Kore'eda is a reserved visual poet.

Some of these films started out on my Guilty Pleasures List, but I decided to move them here if the IMDb rating was 7 or above. I still feel a little guilty about them.

And in turn, I have moved films that may have originated here to my Guilty Pleasures List if the IMDb rating is below 7.

The list isn't necessarily in order, but I've watched the titles near the top more times than I have the titles near the bottom.

See if you can pick the guilty ones.

This list started out as (mostly) films that got rerun endlessly on pay TV movie channels and, for lack of anything else worth watching at the time, I would watch them over and over and never grow tired of them.

Then I created a Favorite American Movies List and decided that if the IMDb rating for a title was 7 or above I would move it to that list. And vice versa, if it was on my Favorite American Movies List and its IMDb rating was below 7, I moved it here.

Favorite Chinese films from the Mainland, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Mostly from the 2000s.

What a shame there are no photos on IMDb for these talented people.

If you're curious what the "Asian Horror" thing was all about this is your starter list. The Glory Days were from 1998 to 2005. Mostly Japanese and Korean. This list is mainstream stuff that created the BUZZ, not the more bloody and painful "Extreme" offerings.

One of my favorite contemporary Japanese directors. He does kids better than adults and women better than men.
a list of 29 titles
By no means an exhaustive list, as there are many documentaries not in the IMDb database. This is just a selection skewed heavily toward Big Cats, Science, and Music.
a list of 15 titles
I run hot and cold with Kim. Love some and hate some. I haven't seen a few of his earliest, so they are not listed here. I'm sure my list is different than yours, so tell me in the comments how you would rank them.

The beautiful and talented from the Mainland, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

It will come as no surprise to viewers of this list that I need to expand my European film horizon. But it is what it is.

Bigger list of European+films I've seen but don't call Favorites.
a list of 12 titles
I love Zhang's common people films and don't like his big bombastic stuff much (and consider RAISE THE RED LANTERN part of the latter). I did like HERO, though, but it went down a rank or two after seeing Chen Kaige's THE EMPEROR AND THE ASSASSIN, which is the same story only more epic.

I haven't watched RED SORGHUM, JU DOU, or A WOMAN, A GUN AND A NOODLE SHOP (his remake of the Coen Bros' BLOOD SIMPLE).

A link to my "Titles" list: Zhang Yimou's films, ranked. Seems like a relevant list to director Zhang Yimou but IMDb only uses "People" lists when generating their concept of Related Lists.
