Asian cinema in the Far Eastern Economic Review

Here's some links to articles on a supposed renaissance of Asian films at 
the local box office.  Interesting that "Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no 
Kamikakushi)" is the only example brought up regarding Japan to support the 
article's supposition.  Unfortunately, it looks rather paltry compared to 
the long list of local hits made in Korea, Hong Kong and Thailand...
Also, since noone seems to have mentioned it yet, there's an article by 
Mark Schilling offering a round-up of Yakuza cinema in the new "Japan" 
magazine, published in Holland (in English) and available internationally.  
An interesting read.
