{     Asian Cult Cinema     }    

From its humble color-photocopied beginnings as a smallish fanzine (originally titled Asian Trash Cinema) so many years ago, Asian Cult Cinema has evolved into an impressive and authoratative resource on the subject of Far Eastern film. Published quarterly, ACC covers a rather expansive gamut- from exploitation to martial arts, gore-filled horror to wacky sexual sci-fi, it's a damn-near comprehensive look at the current Asian film scene. They are also one of the few English-speaking magazines to really give Asian cinema its due, featuring interviews with legends like Jonnie To and Takeshi Kitano, red-hot directors Stephen Chow, and Danny Pang, and stars like Chiaki Kuriyami (of Battle Royale and Kill Bill fame) and Maggie Cheung. Whether you're looking to get the scoop on some rad kung-fu (before Tarantino buys the rights and you are forced to wait 2 years for a domestic release) or you just want to read some impassioned rants about the pros and cons of Japanese "pink" film, ACC has got you covered. Last quarter's issue 44 offered up a run-down of recent Thai cinema, featuring everything from the devastating and soon to be classic martial arts piece Ong Bak to the sleazy and sexy Five Sin Sisters, and providing an incredible overview of the burgeoning Thai film scene. The latest issue showcases the work of HK badass director Corey Yuen and cult madman Gaira, alongside regular columns from Max Allan Collins, Ric Myers and Dr. Stan Glick. The ACC website also offers import versions of many of the featured films, so you can see what you've been missing after you've had a chance to read about it.
