I'll consider this. I have no idea what to nominate, though. Quite a few titles that have popped up are hard to find or bound to piss other participants off or even both.

I actually hope you do join. Outside of Pretty Baby, and Tideland I’ve liked your nominations. Angel Heart especially was a pleasant surprise, and In a Glass Cage, while not “great”, was full of style.



I'm in. I'm only in the mood for a small HOF at the moment (but if this ends up having lotsa participants I don't mind that either).

I'll be interested to see how many noms we get that aren't from Japan or South Korea.

I figure most noms will be from Japan and South Korea as well (spoilers: mine isn’t). Followed maybe by Hong Kong/ China, Taiwan, India. If we’re lucky, maybe a few from Indonesia,Iran or Palestine. I doubt it, but it’d be very interesting

Join: It doesn't really matter if lotsa people hate your nom. Besides, it's cool to introduce people to unfamiliar parts of cinema.



So far we have eight members, yahoo! Even if we get a lot more people there will be extra time if needed for this, so no worries.

We have some awesome films so far! When I have some free time I'll post a teaser with the names of countries are noms came from.



The trick is not minding
My nom is from Thailand, but I'm not against watching a bunch of Japanese films. or South Korean films.
If it isn’t Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives I’m flipping this table in front of me......unless it’s any film from
Apichatpong Weerasethaku.

It's not from Joe, so go ahead and flip it.
