Marshy's Favourite Asian Movies Of 2014 Part 2
While the first half of 2014 produced a number of genuinely impressive Asian films, including The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya, The Raid 2 and Black Coal, Thin Ice, the second half of the year felt a little lacklustre to me. A number of potentially high profile titles, like Sono Sion's Tokyo Tribe, Miike Takashi's Over Your Dead Body, Ning Hao's Breakup Buddies and John Woo's The Crossing failed to make a connection with me. I have also yet to see a few potential candidates, including Ann Hui's The Golden Era, Kim Han-min's Roaring Currents, Jiang Wen's Gone With The Bullets and Lou Ye's Blind Massage.
However, that is not to say that the back end of 2014 was completely without merit. Below you'll find a list of nine Asian offerings that I did enjoy and felt were worth singling out for individual praise.
