    I wasn't fond of So close either. Did anyone see Shutter or the Eye 2, or Audition?

    What's the point of watching Asian films then? Just watch English films instead if you're just gonna neglect the original emotions set by the actors.

    i watched the Eye 2 while i was in thailand. It stopped being scary whenyou understood that it was about natural reincarnation.

    I also watched Ong Bak the thai warrior. While the movie isn't that great the fight scenes are excellen. I think the Actor Tony Jaa has a really unique style that hasn't been in movies that much western ones atl least. The dude seem just as agile as a young Jackie Chan as well.

    NICE a Wong Kar Wai fan. Seriously, that man is the best director I know. In addition to In The Mood For Love and 2064 (which I'm dying to see because ITMFL was so incredible) another film that is a must is Chungking Express.

    In terms of other Asian cinema (which is the best cinema around these days if you ask me) All About Lily Chou-Chou is another maasterpeice.

    You really should try, you're missing half the performance and the director's vision if you settle for dubbs.

    Moved In the Mood for Love up to the top of my netflix list and watched it today based on what you people have said. man, what a strange movie. its so beautiful, and simple, yet claustrophobic and confusing. i liked it though, such a unique directing style

    It's criterion collection as far as I know. All his movies except 2046 should be available at a store. Try Virgin Records if you're having trouble tracking it down.
