This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
A viewer's guide to accompany the book of the same name by Patrick Galloway. The list features every title reviewed in the book, in the order in which they appear.

In 1998, Cinemaya asked 34 critics (mostly Asian critics) to list their 10 favorite Asian films. Cinemaya published all of these lists in issue #41 of the magazine. #1 Tokyo Story appeared on 20 of the lists. This is a list of films that appeared on at least 2 lists. See [url=https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AhCbA3xledPhdGNGLXJ5VmtlZl94R015NDNwWEgxbnc]this spreadsheet[/url] for vote counts.
6 of the critics listed "The Apu Trilogy" without specifying an individual film, so I counted each trilogy vote as a vote for all 3 films.

In 2006, the Korean Film Archive published a list of the top 100 Korean films made between 1936 and 1996, with a big focus on the golden age of Korean cinema (1955-1973). The films were selected by a committee of 13 experts.
