Filtered news/Asian Extreme

The Filter's newswire has received information from the 'iconoclastic' Tartan Films about the Asia Extreme 2005 season. It is a season of extreme films made in Asia, of course, which has given the world some pearls like Mike Takashi's Audition and Hideo Nakata's Dark Water, recently remade and westernalised by Water Salles. So expect super-natural horror (R-Point), a police thriller (One Nite in Mongkok)and thrillers galore (such as Abnormal Beauty). The season does what it says on the tin, that is, it is extreme, but whether it is in extreme good or bad taste will have to be decided by you.
