During the intermission between last night's screening of "Infernal Affairs" and "Chungking Express,"we heard one film geek disclaim to his buddies, "Of course, "Infernal Affairs" is a masterful film, but that's the one Asian film that will never be remade by the studios. It'll be impossible to "Americanize" for audiences over here..."

We didn't have the nerve to tell him about Scorcese's upcoming remake of "Infernal Affairs," called "The Departed."
