    BFI's 50 Essential South Asian Films

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. "This list of films is supposed to be a representative sample of the kinds of films that are produced and consumed in South Asia and elsewhere.

  2. Cinemaya's Greatest Asian Films's icon

    Cinemaya's Greatest Asian Films

    Favs/dislikes: 26:0. 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. You can see some of the top 10 lists in this [url=http://books.google.com/books?id=lZZ-mxaqP6IC&pg=PT416]Google book preview[/url].
