But my favourites are still the ones set in contemporary time, especially Teshigahara Hiroshi's trilogy. Other recommendations (shall add description too): Gohatto - deals wi...

Ah I hope someone subs this too! I love Mitsushima Hikari. I think it'll be hard to find anyone who'll sub this eh? Since it's a docu-drama AND historical. Would really love to watch it though.

I'm Pinay myself. I think the filipino mainstream movie industry is so lacklustre. It's always the same old juvenile boring plots churned out year after year.
