Looking for a Japanese film I saw prior to 2003. It was a dystopian picture of some people trying to have an office romance in the corporate office landscape of Tokyo - lots of shots of bleak urban concrete and highways and faceless office parks full of conformist white collar employees - in the final scene of the film one of the characters is stranded walking along the edge of a highway. It dealt with a complicated love triangle. I know this isn't the title, but it was something like "Kiss me twice, now hold me I love you" or something a little crazy like that- I believe this film was made in the 90s or the early 2000s. It was in Japanese language with subtitles. There is a slight chance it may have been Korean, but I'm pretty sure it was Japanese. This film may have been discussed by Fredric Jameson in one of his essays as it was screened in a graduate school class on Japanese cultural critique.
Can you help me remember a Japanese movie I saw that was very similar to-- but was definitely not-- Kurosawa's Dreams? [more inside]
I'm seeking recommendations for contemporary (last 10 years) Japanese cinema. I'm no so bothered about crazy or ultra-violent manga / manga-style stuff, but open to anything that's really good. Thanks
Please recommend me some recent masterpieces of Asian cinema. [more inside]
