Subway Cinema Coming Attractions:
NEW YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL - Asian Films Are Go!!! (June 16 - July 1)

Visit our archive for previous editions of the NEW YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL:
and 2005.

August 17 - 24, 2006
Welcome back to Subway Cinema News, your much-delayed guide to all the Asian movies playing in all the movie theaters in New York City.

Sunday. August 20. Museum of the Moving Image. Be there. Tony Jaa (ONG BAK) will be there. He'll be doing a martial arts demonstration at 1:30pm in the courtyard and I've seen these demonstrations. In some ways they're even harsher and more jaw-dropping than what you see onscreen. Pity his poor stunt team. Then at 2pm THE PROTECTOR (aka TOM YUM GOONG) will be playing at the Museum in a special advance screening. The story is so-so, but the action is out of sight.

And don't miss KANK! At the ImaginAsian theater, the latest film from Bollywood's blockbuster king, Karan Johar, is unspooling and it's the first Bollywood film in over 30 years to be invited to screen at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival. It's CLOSER, but with the biggest Bolly-stars (Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukherjee) and musical numbers.

Also, Akira Kurosawa's poignant IKIRU is playing at the IFC Friday, Saturday and Sunday at noon.

And at the end of the month the New York Korean Film Festival unspools at several locations, bringing the latest movies from Korea over to NYC as well as a four-film retrospective of Korea's 60's genre workman, Lee Man-hee.

This is really, really simple, but - as a service to those who like their hand held - we're gonna spell it out...
