ransacking asian films

This entry over at Webs of Significance points us to this article on the success of The Departed and what that means for Hollywood's interest in Asian films like Infernal Affairs: Hollywood's Asian affair. I think we're a long way off from Hollywood giving Asian films their due respect. Let's not forget that gaffe at the Oscars, where the announcer mistakenly called The Departed a remake of a Japanese film. The fact of the matter is, Hollywood is going to keep ransacking Asian films for ideas... and that's pretty much it.
