My favourite Japanese movie is Still Walking, directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda.
I liked the way he quietly examined the flaws and dark sides of every member of the family without judging or damning any one of them. Very good photography and music too.
All Hirokazu Kore-eda's movies deal with the family in some way, but I found this one particularly moving.

If we don't include animation movies in the bunch, it's definitely on of Kurosawa movies, and I couldn't chose between Kagemusha, Rashon, The Hidden Fortress or the Seven Samurai.

I also really liked Gonin, my first experience with Japanese movies about yakuzas, and Funky Forest, a fun and wacky movie which is the perfect example of what Japanese oneirism imagery does look like to me. Also highly recommended for confyness reasons.

I'm not really into Japanese movies (though I'd like to), but some time ago I watched this really crazy movie called Symbol. It's a little hard to say what I like about that movie, or better said, to talk about it in general, but to give you an idea, it reminds me a little to Masaaki Yuasa's Mind Game, it's some kind of surreal comedy, very entertaiming and funny (and the ending is great)

Since you didn't list it, have you seen Ran, also by Kurosawa? Another really great film, starring Tatsuya Nakadai (who appears in several of Kurosawa's works), is Harakiri (1962). It's absolutely beautifully constructed, and remains one of my favourite films.

 No.164

All About Lily Chou-Chou and the End of Evangelion. Haven't seen much in the way of Japanese films but those two are my tops for sure

Eureka is probably my most favorite. Many memorable scenes: one in a beach, foreshore and Jim O'Rourke Eureka begins to play, the trumpets made me tremulous; I turned up the volume.

I love both of yours. Akira is definitely similar to EoE.

Tampopo was an absolute treat. Thank you so much for the recommendation sushi!

A movie I was pleasantly surprised by was Wood Job, i was expecting something typically cheesy but it actually had a lot of charm. Definitely a comfy dive into the Japanese countryside.

Maybe you guys can help me, there's this one Japanese movie that's supposed to be pretty well known.
It's a live-action comedy where the characters and story is very dragon-quest-ish.
I've seen some webm's of it and I heard some people call it "the monty python and the holy grail of japan".
Any ideas?

It's not a movie, rather a tv series but maybe you mean The Hero Yoshihiko and the Demon King's Castle?

Oh man I love the Lily Arabesque.
I never finished the film because it got too heavy for me and I tapped out but it had some incredible music.

I actually went and looked at lilyholic and it's still running, mostly spambots but the odd human post too.

I haven't seen that many, but I was going through Kurosawa, Oshima and Kitano's filmographies last year. So far my favorites are
Seven Samurai, Stray Dog by Kurosawa
Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence, The Ceremony by Oshima
Sonatine, A Scene at the Sea by Kitano

I'm kind of buddy cop otaku so if I had to pick one that would be Stray Dog.

It's an amazingly surreal and at times psychedelic slice of life film.

I have mostly seen anime but I watched the movie House recently and really enjoyed it. It's a comedy/horror movie with a lot of great and creative visuals. I don't want to ruin the plot, so I'd recommend seeing it yourself.

+1 to The Hidden Fortress, it's really funny.

I've seen just a handful of them, my favourites so far are Aku no Kyōten and Love Letter.
Could you recommend something nice in mid-90's to mid-00's range? Thanks.

I just watched swing girls which is from 2004. It was really good. There was a fair few cuts that were really pretty and it's really mellow and light which I love personally.
I do have a biased soft spot for early/mid 2000's stuff though. It subconsciously puts me in the mindset of my childhood or something.

Also the main character is the qt's qt I have ever seen.

I've always seen lots of love for Lily Chou Chou, but in my case it's more of a love/hate thing. I really don't like the way the exposition is done during the first 30 or so minutes of the movie, but I like the themes the movie touches upon. I always feels empty when it ends, because I would've liked to know more about the characters.
