I just saw your post calling for blogs/resources on Asian cinema. I would suggest reading Wise Kwai's Thai Film Journal.

Thai cinema received international attention this year for 'Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives', a magical realist film about rural Isan, and 'Yes or No', which is ground-breaking in its depiction of a lesbian relationship. I would also suggest the action/comedy films 'Saturday Killer' and 'Friday Killer'. These two are bizarre and at times inscrutable, but lampoon current Thai politics.
