Hidely ho, neighborinos, and welcome back to The 300, a recurring feature on my dumb-diddley attempt to watch 300 movies in theaters in the year 2018. I’ll be catching new releases, classics, hidden gems, and festival films to experience the wide world of cinema in all its forms. By casting a wide net, I hope there’s something that you can also enjoy and share.
As always, there are three rules for The 300:
The New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) is finishing up this weekend, and I was able to catch a few more films over the last week. Wish I had time to see more. For instance, I missed out on 1987: When the Day Comes, the new movie by Save the Green Planet director Jang Joon-hwan. I also regret missing The Brink, the leading role debut of martial arts actor Zhang Jin, best known for his work in The Grandmaster, Ip Man 3, and SPL 2.
The Japan Cuts Film Festival, however, will be kicking off next week, and I will be catching a couple of the movies each weekend, including the East Coast premiere of Night Is Short, Walk on Girl from anime director Masaaki Yuasa. Keep an eye out for those reviews coming soon.
And so, onward.
