I'm just starting out on an obsession with the work of Zhang Yimou and Chen
Kaige, and need a little help on their filmographies. Namely: are there
any Yimou films AFTER "Red Sorghum" and BEFORE "Ju Dou"? Similarly, are
there any Kaige films between "Farewell My Concubine" and "Temptress Moon"?
A related topic: suggestions for non-Kaige/Yimou films to seek out? So far
I've only seen "The Blue Kite"... these films are astonishingly consistent!!
One more query: as all the films/directors I've named are fairly "well known"
in the West, what other Chinese directors should I be aware of, those who
may be even more underground (I'm thinking of "Beijing Bastards," which I've
heard a little about...)
