and 2005.

December 14 - December 21, 2006
Zhang Yimou's epic wraps Chow Yun-fat and Gong Li in miles of crackling gold decor and sets them at each others' throat as the world's most dysfunctional Imperial family.
Film Forum hosts the victory lap of Thai auteur, Wisit Sasantieng's, first movie, the eye-popping TEARS, bought by Miramax in 2001 and locked away ever since. Kudos to Magnolia for setting it free.
A TASTE OF TEA (February 9)
2005's landslide winner of the New York Asian Film Festival's Audience Award hits the ImaginAsian and it's about time. This amazing movie will blow your mind and electrify your heart with its tale of a family in rural Japan. Trains emerge from heads, a poo ghost appears, 50ft doppelgangers skulk and stare and a sunflower eats the world in a movie Time Out New York calls "a masterpiece"

The best gay, samurai, motorcycle road movie musical from Japan that you've never seen. If you want your mind blown, this remake of a 1958 Japanese classic is the film for you. Featuring songs like "Born to be Gay!", massive drug use, hallucinations, and more!

NANA 2 (Japan, 2006, 130 minutes)
Monday, December 18 @ 7pm (film starts at 7:30)
New York Tokyo brings the premiere of NANA 2, the sequel to Japan's massive box office hit, NANA, about two young women living in Tokyo united by their shared first name...Nana. One's a rock n' roll chick and one's a pretty "Hello Kitty" princess and the films follow their lives and loves. I can't say enough good things about NANA, and NANA 2 promises more of the same.
The two stars, Mika Nakashima and Yui Ichikawa, will be in attendance and they'll be doing a Q&A after the show.
The movie is free, all you have to do is RSVP to:

KABUL EXPRESS (2006, India, 120 minutes)
Daily @ 12:00 pm, 2:30 pm, 5:00 pm, 7:45 pm and 10:30 pm
This is not your Bollywood movie. KABUL EXPRESS is a flick about a group of journalists who go to Afghanistan to interview the Taliban, and they help escort a Taliban fighter back to his homeland of Pakistan. Set in 2001, just after the first US bombing campaign ended, this flick stars Bollywood stalwart John Abraham and is produced by Bollywood's answer to Disney, Yash Raj. The filmmakers received continual threats from the Taliban during shooting, and one of their drivers was kidnapped and killed. But this is something totally different and it's worth your time.
No reviews are available at this time.

Landmark Sunshine
12/20 and 12/21 only
A two-day screening (it looks like) of Clint Eastwood's companion piece to FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS but this time the Battle of Iwo Jima is told from the Japanese point of view. Favorites like Ken Watanabe and Shido Nakamura star and this flick has been getting critical praise out the wazoo.
