NEW YORK KOREAN FILM FESTIVAL (August 25 - September 3)
Every year, this festival takes a core sample of what's playing in Korean cinemas and carefully brings it over to New York for your viewing pleasure.

THRONE OF BLOOD (1957, Japan, 105 minutes)
Friday - Sunday at Noon
Forget RAN. Forget DREAMS. THRONE OF BLOOD is Akira Kurosawa's best-looking movie.

WATER (India, 2006, 114 minutes)
Daily at 3:10pm and 5:40pm
Deepa Mehta's trilogy draws to a close with this story of widows living in India. Powerful and moving, it rocked the Canadian box office and was targeted for trouble in India where the set was attacked and burned down. It's been running forever so it must be good.

THE NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL (September 29 - October 15)
The New York Film Festival is stuffed full of chewy goodness this year with a fistful of high-profile Asian movies. THE HOST, Korea's monster hit monster movie! TRIAD ELECTION, which is really Johnnie To's inimitable ELECTION 2! PAPRIKA, a new flick from Satoishi Kon! You can't beat these movies with a stick. And you can't get tickets till September 10, but you should be ready to hit the ground running when they go on sale.
