    AMP's 100+1 Essential South Korean Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 11:0. "South Korean cinema, and particularly the mainstream part, has been developing at an uncanny pace since the beginning of the New Wave, which started during the last years of the 90s, and resulted in the renewed interest of local audiences for local movies. “Shiri” (1999) kickstarted the phenomenon by becoming the first film in South Korean history to sell more than two million tickets in Seoul alone. The success continued with a number of other blockbusters while by the 2000s, and particularly after “Oldboy”, the country’s cinema started to attract significant international attention. The “trend” continued during the next years, and currently, S. Korean film industry is considered among the top in the world, with directors that have shot movies in Hollywood (Park Chan-wook, Bong Joon-ho) actors that have become international stars (Bae Doona, Lee Byung-hun) and awards from most of the top festivals in the world (Lee Chan-dong for “Burning” and Bong Joon-ho for “Parasite”) However, in terms of inspiration and actual context, the roots of this trend can be traced in the 80s, when the end of the long period of dictatorship resulted in the release of almost two decades of compressed creativity, in another surge that continued until the beginning of the 90s. Further back, the Golden Age of S. Korean cinema is placed between 1955 and 1972, when a number of films that are considered still among the best (“The Housemaid”, “Aimless Bullet”) were released. With all that in mind, and on the occasion of the anniversary of 100 years of Korean cinema, we decided to list 100+1 S. Korean films that we believe are among the most notable the local industry has ever produced. Thankfully, the Korean Film Archive has given us the opportunity to watch a number of films that were produced before the New Wave, dating back to the 1930, thus expanding our view of Korean cinema quite significantly. Unfortunately, we have not managed to watch movies that were produced before the split, and thus, this list is by no means complete regarding the whole history of Korean cinema. Furthermore, 101 is not an adequate number to present every noteworthy film since the 50s and thus, a number of excellent productions were not included (we will not tell you which). In our effort, we included films not only for their sheer cinematic quality but also for their significance, while a number of titles were included just because we like them (they call it personal taste, I think). At some degree, we also tried to have diversity in the selection, both in terms of directors and context. Without further ado, here are 101 films that we believe every cinephile should watch."

    AMP's 60 Best Asian Films of the Decade (2011-2020)

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. "Considering the way Asian cinema has impacted the international movie industry the last few years, it is easy to say that this was one of the best decades in the history of the cinema of the continent. The success of most of the film that feature in the top 10 of this list is undeniable, while the ripples sent were felt quite significantly this year also, with Asian films getting recognition all over the world In an effort to winnow some of the best Asian movies of the decade (2011-2020) we came up with 60 we felt were the ones that truly stand out in terms of quality, impact and sheer entertainment they offered. The order of this list could be different of course and the number much bigger, but our effort was towards presenting great films and not cataloguing all of them, always with a focus on diversity in style, themes and country of origin, although East Asian somewhat dominates the list."

    AMP's 30 Impressively Colored Movies from Asia

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. "Since we dealt with the monochrome ones somea few weeks before, the most impressively colored films were a path we had to take. Essentially, a number of directors considered masters (Akira Kurosawa, Wong Kar-wai, Zhang Yimou, Hou Hsiao-hsen etc) have always invested on intense coloring for their films, resulting in audiovisual poems. As usually, with a focus on diversity, we present 30 of those films, in alphabetical order."
