It's festival time

The New York Asian Film Festival 2005 is underway. A couple of movies that I have seen and would recommend:

My Brother Nikhil (India) - The description on the site is tad incorrect. This is not really the first Indian movie to touch upon AIDS, but definitely the best one. See earlier post

Josee, the Tiger and the Fish (Japan) - I saw this movie a couple of years ago at the Montreal Film Festival, and quite liked it. It is a bitter-sweet love story set in contemporary Japan.

Other promising ones: Arahan, Karaoke Terror, Kekexili: Mountain Patrol, Survive Style 5+, University of Laughs
