Here is my Top List of Chinese films Numbers 11 - 20.  I will later post 21 - 30, 31 - 40 or and 41 - 50 .  Some of these movies should be about where they are on my list.  Other movies in the 11 - 20 list could have been in my top 10 list of movies.   This is very subjective, changes with time and I am sure your list is very different.  I would be happy to see it.
