The past year has seen Chinese mainland's film industry rake in more than 13.1 billion yuan (US$2.07 billion) at the box office, and domestic studios produce 791 films in various genres. The quality of most films, however, is still an issue.

There were standout films, though. There was Gu Changwei's "Love for Life" (starring A-listers Zhang Ziyi and Aaron Kwok) that tried to tackle the issue of AIDS. There was also Li Yu's art film "Buddha Mountain" (starring Fan Bingbing and Sylvia Chang) that tried to explore life's cruel realities and salvations. We had China's first visual cult "The Butcher, the Chef, and the Swordsman" and an innovative Kung Fu hero romance "Wuxia" that redefined the genre with some startling, and fascinating additions.

So, break out the popcorn as rolls the credits for 10 best films made by filmmakers on the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan...
