at this point in time, i’ve seen around 30 of the movies. most of the taiwan ones that made the list. good thing i watched a lot of old hou hsiao-hsien, that was a lot of the movies there. seen a lot of tsai ming-liang also. a lot of edward yang on this list, really want to watch his movies. watched 3 out of 6 movies on the list. too bad most of his movies are impossible to find. or they are really bad vhs releases. the one that i have ready to watch by him is 4 hours long, so i’ve never found time to watch it. zhang yimou was the mainland director with most movies on it, not a big fan of him. i have another ~30 of the movies ready to watch. if i only had the time..
