  2. AMP's 25 Great Contemporary Iranian Movies's icon

    AMP's 25 Great Contemporary Iranian Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. The news of the arrest of Jafar Panahi, Mostafa Al-Ahmad and Mohammad Rasoulof last week came to cement the oppressive tactics of the current Iranian regime, with the industry now being in more fear than ever for more incarcerations. At the same time, and despite these issues and the whole censorship that dominates all aspects of life, the Iranian movie industry remains rather vibrant, still one of the biggest in the world, with hundreds of movies produced every year. In a homage to both the arrested and the industry, we present 25 Iranian movies, released post-2010, in alphabetical order.
  3. AMP's 40 Great Contemporary Taiwanese Movies's icon

    AMP's 40 Great Contemporary Taiwanese Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Despite the fact that the West mostly knows about Tsai Ming-liang, Hou Hsiao Hsen, Edward Yang and Ang Lee’s works, Taiwan is actually home of a rather vibrant movie industry, which produces films of quality of every category. Particularly during the last few years, when Netflix gave local filmmakers a platform for their films to be known all over the world, the aforementioned fact became even more evident, with the audience discovering the quite high level of Taiwanese productions, beyond the aforementioned masters. In that fashion, we chose to highlight 40 of the best local productions, actually including two works by them, which could, though, very easily be omitted. Without further ado, here are 40 great Taiwanese movies released from 2010 and onwards, with a focus, as always, on diversity. NOTE: Missing on IMDB: * Nine Shots (2019) by James Su * The Child of Nowhere (2020) by Dio Wang

    AMP's 40 Weird Asian Movies That Deserve a Watch

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. If there was ever a region that included themes, characters and motifs that occasionally surpassed even the borders of the surreal, that would be Asia, with the titles that can be easily described as absurd coming out in scores. Maybe it has to do with a particular type of idiosyncrasy, maybe that in a number of countries, particularly in Japan and India, filmmakers feel the freedom to express themselves in any way they want, away from any kind of political correctness or even cinematic “rules”. A number of these movies have already garnered the title of cult, but as we are about to see in this particular list, titles from the whole spectrum of cinema can be found here. Without further ado, here are 40 movies that definitely deserve the title of weird, in alphabetical order. PS. The focus on Japanese films was inevitable…
  5. AMP's 25 Great Erotic Asian Movies's icon

    AMP's 25 Great Erotic Asian Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Considering that the majority of South and South East Asian countries are quite conservative when it comes to the presentation of eroticism on cinema (even more so regarding nudity), the number of films that have sensualism as their key element is not exactly huge, at least when compared to European cinema for example. However, Japan and S. Korea do produce a number of this type of movies, even within their censhorship laws, while a number of other countries also have their entries in the category. Also of note is a recent trend that has begun within the Japanese movie industry, of presenting erotic films that try to cater to the aesthetics of both men and women, while abiding by the MeToo rules, with the result being interesting as much as ambitious. In this list, we tried to focus on titles where the erotic is one of the key elements, while trying to stay away from exploitation or soft-porn (S. Korean cinema is filled with these btw) for the most part, instead focusing on “regular” movies that simply include this aspect, in order to titillate. Evidently, we could definitely include more titles from Japan (and S. Korea to a point) but we chose to keep the list as diverse as possible. Without further ado, here are 25 Asian movies that justify this last term. NOTE: Missing on IMDB: Love Nonetheless (Hideo Jojo, 2022, Japan)
  6. AMP's 50+1 Great Asian Movies Based on Manga/Anime's icon

    AMP's 50+1 Great Asian Movies Based on Manga/Anime

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Over the last several years, major Japanese studios have started to follow the tactics of their Hollywood equivalents by finally adapting their own comics, called manga, in the way they deserve. This tendency is not exactly new, since films based on manga/anime have been shot since the 70s. However, it is the first time that so many expensive and subsequently elaborate productions are being made. This is chiefly attributed to two factors: 1.The people behind those films finally realized that they could not squeeze eight or more hours of anime in a single film, and thus decided to present the movie in two or three parts, retaining much of the original’s story and themes. 2.They also realized since most of the titles are sci-fi themed, much of the budget should be allocated towards the special effects, in order for the adaptation to capture the images of the original. In addition to the large budgets that were eventually approved for those films, the creators managed to finally elaborately depict the originals. With a focus on diversity, here are 50 titles that we believe are worth watching, in alphabetical order. NOTE: The list contains more than 51 films, because the following series are considered as one single entry in the list: * 20th Century Boys Trilogy (2008-2009) * Assassination Classroom Double Bill (2015-2016) * HK Double Bill (2013-2016) * Lone Wolf and Cub Series (1972-1974) * Parasyte Double Bill (2014-2015) * Shinjuku Swan Double Bill (2015-2017) * The Mole Song Trilogy (2014-2021) * Rurouni Kenshin Trilogy (2012-2014)
  7. AMP's 30 Great Asian Road Movies's icon

    AMP's 30 Great Asian Road Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Although a favorite of American fans, the road movie is actually a genre that has many fans all over the world, and particularly in Asia, where the occasionally vast spaces provide a great source for such movies. At the same time the category has been used as a metaphor for various psychological, political, social, philosophical etc comments, a plethora of times, highlighting the richness of the particular cinematic approach. Here is a list of 30 of the greatest Asian road movies, in no particular order. Since we already have a list about taxi drivers, we decided to leave these movies out
  8. AMP's 25 Great Asian Comedies's icon

    AMP's 25 Great Asian Comedies

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Although not exactly that most exported genre towards the West, comedy still holds a significant part in the industries of Asian countries, even the style of humor can occasionally be described as “too local”. Nevertheless, there are movies whose style of comedy can be perceived as universal, with Korean titles being closer to the US style of comedy, Japanese being as weird and extreme as possible, Chinese following deadpan paths for the most part and Indian ones indulging in crudity on occasion. To be as inclusive as possible, we also included some romantic comedy titles, with the focus, as always, being on diversity Without further delay, here are 25 great Asian comedies, from 2000 onwards, in alphabetical order

  12. BFI's 100 Bible Films's icon

    BFI's 100 Bible Films

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. From The Passion of the Christ to Life of Brian, and from The Ten Commandments to Last Temptation of Christ, filmmakers have been adapting the stories of the Bible for over 120 years, from the first time the Höritz Passion Play was filmed in the Czech Republic back in 1897. Ever since, these stories have inspired musicals, comedies, sci-fi, surrealist visions and the avant-garde not to mention spawning their own genre, the biblical epic. Filmmakers across six continents and from all kinds of religious perspectives (or none at all), have adapted the greatest stories ever told, delighting some and infuriating others. 100 Bible Films is the indispensable guide to this wide and varied output, providing an authoritative but accessible history of biblical adaptations through one hundred of the most interesting and significant biblical films. Richly illustrated with film stills, this book depicts how such films have undertaken a complex negotiation between art, commerce, entertainment and religion. Matthew Page traces the screen history of the biblical stories from the very earliest silent passion plays, via the golden ages of the biblical epic, through to more innovative and controversial later films as well as covering significant TV adaptations. He discusses films made not only by some of our greatest filmmakers, artists such as Martin Scorsese, Jean Luc Godard, Alice Guy, Roberto Rossellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Lotte Reiniger, Carl Dreyer and Luis Buñuel, but also those looking to explore their faith or share it with lovers of cinema the world over.

  23. Capitolfest 19 (2022)'s icon

    Capitolfest 19 (2022)

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Capitolfest 19 Most of the films at Capitolfest are shown in 35mm prints on the theater’s carbon-arc, variable-speed projectors. The prints for the movies shown at Capitolfest come from archives such as the Library of Congress, George Eastman Museum, Museum of Modern Art, UCLA Film & Television Archive, and Universal Pictures, as well as from private collections. The festival includes several extremely rare talking films, as well as some equally rare silents. Each of the silent films will be accompanied by some of the world’s foremost exponents of authentic silent movie accompaniment. The goal of the Capitol Theatre is not only to show these vintage films, but also to re-create the experience of seeing these movies when they were new. This year’s Capitolfest features a tribute to sometime star and frequent supporting actor, Robert Armstrong (1890-1973), showcasing him in several movies from the silent and talkie era. Hero, villain, nice guy or cad, Robert Armstrong was a fixture in Hollywood A and B features (as well as television) in five different decades. Back this year is the Capitolfest dealers room, featuring films, dvds, laserdiscs, autographs, posters, books, and other memorabilia, which will be open throughout the weekend. Capitolfest differs from other classic movie festivals in its leisurely pacing. There are intermissions within each session (featuring live organ music) and relatively lengthy breaks between sessions, allowing attendees to savor the films. (Thus our slogan: “A vacation—not a marathon.”) Approx. 90% of Capitolfest attendees come from out of town but, whether you are local or travel hundreds of miles, we want you to feel that the Capitol is your theater. As always, Capitolfest organizers would be more than happy to provide interested parties with more information. Updates can be found on the Capitol’s website at www.romecapitol.com, and there is an on-going discussion on the Capitolfest Facebook page.
