This Week in Rankings

Since the last update I’ve been covering some film programs outside of the Seattle area, writing short reviews of a handful of films playing at the New York Asian Film Festival and Japan Cuts for InReview Online. I also made an index which includes some old and new longer reviews here for the NYAFF. There was a very cool Johnnie To series in SanFrancisco I made an index of older reviews for, and I proposed some alternate titles for Seattle’s too short but welcome nonetheless Hong Kong miniseries. And I have an index ready for the Old School Kung Fu Film Fest coming to New York in a couple of weeks.

Mid-year also passed since the last update, and as is tradition I listed a bunch of my favorite films of the year so far. Over at Seattle Screen Scene I reviewed Wu Jing’s Wolf Warrior 2, Louis Koo’s giant alien cat movie Meow, Ann Hui’s Our Time Will Come, DA Pennebaker’s Monterey Pop, Stevefat’s Weeds on Fire, and Wong Chun’s Mad World. Also over at Frame.land, I wrote about Samuel Fuller’s Merrill’s Marauders.

This Week in Rankings

Since the last update I made several end of the year lists for 2016: of The Best Older Films I Saw, The Best Books I Read, and The Best Films of the Year (via conventional chronology), along with a collection of pictures I took of passages from books I read throughout the year. I also announced the nominees for this year’s Endy Awards and wrote about the first two of Tsui Hark’s Once Upon a Time in China movies. Over at Seattle Screen Scene I wrote about Paul WS Anderson’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, M. Night Shyamalan’s Split, the Jackie Chan vehicle Railroad Tigers, Cheng Er’s The Wasted Times, and Derek Yee’s The Sword Master.

Also at SSS, we had the results of our annual year-end poll of local critics, programmers and directors, along with a fourpart roundtable discussion of the year in film among regular SSS contributors. I wrote about Oliver Stone’s JFK for Movie Mezzanine, contributed some Double Features to Mubi’s year-end collection, wrote about Toni Erdmann and Zhao Tao for InReview Online, voted in Movie Mezzanine’s end of the year poll and wrote about the Best Chinese Films of the Year and my Film Discoveries of 2016 for them.
