Great Chinese Movies

January 23, 2011, 03:14 PM posted in General Discussion

Hey! I'm a film enthusiast currently majoring in Chinese, and so I was wondering if anyone has a fabulous movie to recommend? Preferably in Mandarin, but I'd like to see Cantonese movies as well! :)

。most look pretty old though&may be hard to get a hold of. I'll vouch for no 10 though.

A few of my favorites:

Farewell My Concubine

The Emperor and the Assassin

Not One Less

Lust, Caution (Not a movie to watch with your folks, if you get my drift)

Crazy Stone

A World Without Thieves

These are all Mandarin films (though there's a lot of dialect in Crazy Stone if I remember correctly...)

Thank you! :) I've already seen some of the movies mentioned, but I'll be looking for the others!
