A New York Asian FIlm Festival Cheat Sheet
Unlike years past we won't be flooding you with 900 reviews up front , rather We're starting with some reviews of films that we had on DVD. This will then give way to daily film reviews that are in advance of their festival screenings plus reports from the festival itself.
We've seen half the films screening, we have another 22 plus films we're seeing at the festival.-plus we're going to a good number of films again because they demand to be seen big.
The early cheat sheet of films you should try to see is:
LAST SUPPER (this is a a must see on the big screen)
CONFESSION OF MURDER (Peter has tweeted that this is his pick for THE summer film of 2013 and he's right)
CHALLENGE OF LADY NINJA
AN INACCURATE MEMOIR
LAST TYCOON (I'm seeing this again because it's a great film)
BLOODY TIE (This requires a big screen)
RUROUNI KENSHIN (One of the best films I've seen this year and I'm going again)
And keep in mind, most of the films are only getting a single screening so you have to go when they are playing. (The single screenings is the reason we're not covering every film)
I'll have a complete list of what we've seen and what we're seeing later in the week.
