I think some of the best films latel have been coming out of asia. Korea has some of the best, with ‘Old Boy’ and ‘The Host’ being two prime examples.
Then throw in a healt dose of HK films (Just about anything with Chow Yun Fat like Hard Boiled or The Killer ) and you are well on your way.
Not to be out-done in the ‘WTF’ category, there is Tetsuo (The Iron Man) and Tokyo Decadence. The first is a serious WTF art-house film, and the second… well… Japanese prostitution ending with a hard left turn into WTF-ville.
That said, and leaving out SCORES of films like Ichi the Killer, animated insanity (AKIRA) and just plain good storytelling (Akira Kurosawa films… pick one…) This has to be the best preview I have seen in ages. (Thanks to the commenter on Jonny’s Eagles post…)
Be warned… It is NSFW bloody, but no naked. So if your boss doesn’t care about gore, go for it.
