New York Asian Film Festival - the Home Version

20th Century Boys

Let's face it, there are even people who live in New York City who couldn't make it to the New York Asian Film Festival. For the rest of us, it should be noted that a good number of the films are available on DVD. It may not be as cool as seeing it on the big screen in a (hopefully) air-conditioned theater. On the bright side, many of these DVDs cost no more than a movie ticket. When you factor in service charges, transportation to and from the theaters, and snacks or meals, and for some, the services of a babysitter, buying a DVD seems even more reasonable. What is listed here are primarily DVDs playable internationally, regardless of home region coding. Some exceptions are noted. Also, while I have listed only one version, there may be a choice of other DVD versions as well as Blu-ray versions. The versions listed have English subtitles. It should be noted that Monster X Strikes Back is now available for rent from Netflix and GreenCine.

Thanks so much for this, Peter. This does make it easier to catch up on essential Asian films, as I trust your judgment without question.
