I've been catching up on Asian cinema the past few days and every time I do, I come up with a couple of real gems. My favourites this time include Castaway on the Moon (which is basically a Korean version of Cast Away.. I shouldn't make a statement like that because the latter was an awful film imo) a very subtle, creative, colorful, feelgood (kind of), compelling drama with a perfect ending, which will probably end up in my all time favourites list. I also enjoyed Suzhou River very much. It felt like a Wong Kar-wai movie, although I liked it way better than any of his movies. I was surprised how director Ye Lou could take an ugly city like Shanghai, and make it look as magical as it did.
Thanks for this - just watched Castaway on the Moon and loved it. The story really sucked me in.
