New Yorkers have an extraordinary opportunity to see Asian films at 
their best this week. Opening at the Film Forum on Wednesday July 15th 
is “Court”, an Indian film about a judicial system that functions as an 
arm of the police by making it impossible for radicals to enjoy the 
rights of legal protection supposedly guaranteed in a democracy. In a 
real sense, the title of the film might have been “Kangaroo Court”. Two 
days later the Korean film “A Hard Day” arrives at the Village East. 
Once again if we play with titles, it has an affinity with “A Hard Day’s 
Night”, Richard Lester’s classic about the Fab Four given its comic 
inventiveness and visual panache—all the more surprising since it at 
first blush it seems like just another policier.
