My Favorite Asian Films

So I decided to get as much into modern Asian cinema as I could, watching as many different films from as many different directors as I could. I'm going to continue my East Asian Directors marathon, but I've seen most of the films already and I'll just be using the marathon to comment on the films themselves. School of course takes up a lot of my time so it might be a while before that, but here are the 41 Asian films that I liked (with varying degrees) from the years 2000-2010 in alphabetical order.
