Favorite aisan movie


Recommended Posts

Hey there, I haven't seen that many myself but I have some solid recommendations (all Korean movies btw):


Some of the above may be hard to watch for sensitive viewers so beware :) 


Also interested to see what our fellow community members recommend. I feel like Asian cinema kind of breaks away from Hollywood formulas and give us some fresh stuff to explore.

It’s a testament to my poor knowledge of Asian cinema that, with the exception of one film, all movies featured on my list have been released in this century and don’t include any work by the likes of Kurosawa, Wong Kar-wai and many more, simply because I’ve never seen any of their films.
