    Default Top 10 Asian movies of all time

    Name yours. I'm interested in some recommendations.

    I'm not sure about a top 10 but my favorites include : Sympathy for Mr.Vengeance, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, Oldboy, Okuribito and Twilight Samurai, off the top of my head.

    Yes, Kurosawa is awesome. Hidden Fortress is probably my favorite of his, but Seven Samurai definately is one of my favorites. I also like Throne of Blood, a fascinating take on MacBeth...actually, I love all his films! Can't go wrong with Kurosawa.

    Virtually all Asian movies I watch are either horror movies with little mainstream appeal, or anime movies. Also, is this strictly East Asian cinema, or does Bollywood count?

    I did mean to inquiry about East Asian cinema. But I'd be interested in any movie that is part of a top 10 "all of asia"movie list, including indian movies, yes.
