Edit List

I love all the Japanese titles by Ozu, Kurosawa, Imamura, Kobayashi, Suzuki, Shimizu, Mizogushi, Oshima, Shinoda, Teshigahara, and Naruse. But younger upstarts from around the Yellow Sea, Taiwan, the Pacific Rim have made considerable contributions from: Hirokazu Kore-eda, Lee Chang - Dong, Ang Lee, Wong Kar - Wai, and Edward Yang are taking the Eastern cinematic experience to new heights

    keep at it. tenacity, will, want, and never let another be the one to set your limits. the fact you have a goal is very encouraging and step one. keep making them and you will surpass us all. best always - russell

    @futurestar...Checkout a documentary called "Z Channel". Heaven's Gate is talked about in that film. By the way your collection is awesome.

    Awesome collection! Stalker would make a fine addition to the Criterion collection--it's my fave Tarkovsky
