The result of the Dgenerate poll on the best Chinese films of the decade is out. An excellent list to catch up on I frankly admit, some of the films I never heard of, and more I have not yet seen. But I am working on it now. The interesting thing to me: the expected "winner", but apart from that very few Hong Kong movies on the list:

1. In the Mood for Love, Wong Kar-wai (of course, brilliant)

2. Tie Xi Qu: West of the Tracks, Wang Bing (ahem… I got the DVD now)

3.  Platform, Jia Zhangke (I cannot remember, to be honest, whether I saw that)

4. Yi Yi, Edward Yang(must have missed it)

5. Still Life, Jia Zhangke (yes, one of my favourites)

6. Devils on the Doorstep, Jiang Wen (I think I saw that, but cannot remember at all)

7. Oxhide, Liu Jiayin (never heard of it)

(tie) Summer Palace, Lou Ye (I have the DVD, but…)

(tie) The World, Jia Zhangke (yes!)

10. Blind Shaft, Li Yang (yes, yes!)

(tie) Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Ang Lee (funny choice, I never even thought if that)
