100 Greatest Eastern Films (2018)

A list created by sleestakk

The website “Eastern Film Fans” is collecting the top 100 favorite HK/Chinese films to make their crowdsourced list of the best films. This is very similar to what LoveHKfilm did a few years ago. This is my working list that I will submit to them before the March 31, 2018 deadline.

Total WIP for the time being so I can throw favorites in here as they come up. Funny how predictable the first 40-50 are bc they really are the best films.
