In view of the dearth of any new Asian films being released on Region 1 DVD this week, we direct your attention to the limited release of Kekexili: Mountain Patrol (official web site). Is it just in New York City this week?
According to the site, only a truly limited number of US communities will have the opportunity to see this film on the big screen. If yours is one of them, check it out. It’s been well-reviewed (generally) and, hey, it’s Asian.
