    just kidding ;-)
    There were 3 Asian films that were widely recommended in 2018. I listed 1) "Burning" and didn't think 2) "Shoplifters" was quite as special/meaningful/distinctive. I plan to watch 3)"Ash is Purest White" next month.

    I plan to finally catch up with Jia Zhangke's MOUNTAINS MAY DEPART this weekend.
    Anything you recommend particularly?
    I love Korean romances and just bought an import dvd of "Art Museum by the Zoo" for my collection

    PARASITE

    Ash Is Purest White/江湖儿女 (Jia Zhang-ke 2018)
    Long Day's Journey Into Night (Bi Gan)
    Suburban Birds//郊区的鸟/Jiao qu de niao (Qiu Sheng 2018)[/SIZE][/B]
    Burning was one of my favorites of the year, seen in the NYFF last fall, also re-watched on screeners.
    Burning/Beoning /버닝 (Lee Chang-dong 2018)
    I wasn't that crazy about Shofplifters. It will be interesting to see the Cannes prizewinner Parasite, which has a related theme.

    I've done coverage of the New York Asian Film Festival at Lincoln Center for the past two years and will do it for this year, and it's coming up.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I'll definitely see "Long Day's" some day soon.

    Good. Don't miss Burning. Suburban Birds might be harder to find. I saw it in ND/NF this year and it crept up on me.
