"Whether you will fully appreciate Noé's film depends on your stamina and your ability to handle his extremely direct approach, but just on a cinematic level alone there is so much to enjoy here."
"Symbol is a rare type of film. Extremely creative, laugh out loud funny, artistic yet easy digestible and leaving you behind with a slightly bedazzled but contented feeling. It's an experience."
"It's funny, endearing and dark at the same time, hitting a very rare balance. Add to that the mastery coming from every frame and you have a true gem that should appeal to a pretty large crowd"
"People not liking adhd animation, purely visceral cinema or semi-random pop chaos, do stay away from this film."
"If you liked the first Crank film but thought it was just a little too tame, this sequel will cater to your needs."
"If you're looking for a short, fun and action-filled film than Gamer is prime choice."
"It's a tough choice deciding whether it's Air Doll or After Life that ranks as my favorite Koreeda film, but I'm glad he finally cashed in on the potential he showed in After Life."
"Usually negative feedback lowers people's expectations (which is a good thing), in this case many potential viewers seemed to dismiss this film completely without even giving it a fair chance."
"There is plenty to love here. The film knows no weak points, has a strong heart and makes the 160 minutes seem like a short introduction to the main story."
"I hope this isn't Refn's final experimental film as he shows true talent for this kind of thing."
"Arias' sense of humor is considerably different from Kitano's, but Heaven's Door could be mistaken for one made by a Kitano apprentice."
"If you're up for a good 90 minutes of alternative, arthouse-inspired genre cinema, this might be just the film for you"
"A true fantasy film that betrays I.G's struggle with full-CG animation, but makes up for that with excellent art direction and bucket loads of creativity."
"Sodium Babies feels like a film made by a duo who feared this was their single, one-time shot at becoming professional directors."
"I liked District 9. A lot. It's a blockbuster, but as blockbusters should be. Near perfect use of CG, superb mech designs and great action scenes."
"Antichrist is atmospheric, moody, technically impressive and pretty mysterious."
"Think Amélie but with a darker, more adventurous and boyish edge. It's a good 100 minutes of fun in a recognizable but still outlandish version of Paris, hosted by a gang of endearing weirdos."
"But most of all, Where The Wild Things Are is a magical, fantastical film presented in a pretty realistic and believable way."
"Meat Grinder's strength lies with the excellent mix of ingredients put into the film."
"Raging Phoenix is another very solid entry in the Thai martial arts selection."

"The raw and unrelenting bouts are really spectacular and make this one of the best action flicks I've seen in a long time."

"Kiriya serves a roller-coaster ride, but one that makes sure that the better moments can be relived late at night while lying in bed with your eyes closed."
"Van Hees really proved his worth with his second film. Dirty Mind is funny, bears a good and original story and is well directed on all fronts to help create a solid feel for the film."
"Accident is a very good film. Not really excelling in anything particular, but strong and stylish in every department, forming a very solid and tight whole."
"Necromentia belongs to the best Barker adaptations not written by Barker himself. If you like Barker's visions of demons and netherworlds, there's a big chance you'll love Teo's Necromentia."
"Ink shows enormous potential, executed well beyond what anyone could expect considering the limitations. A little gem that will one day find its audience and is destined to become a cult hit"
"The remarkable trip of one farmer and his huge cow. My advice: just watch it and marvel at this unlikely piece of genre mash-ups."
"The Storm Warriors is definitely not a masterpiece, but taking it at face value, it's an almost perfect piece of entertainment featuring some stunning art direction."
"If you think films like Terminator Salvation need a solid storyline and well-developed characters, you would do best to stay away from this film."

"Donju brings a special breed of humor, mixing dry deliveries, nonsensical dialogue and random interludes to a strange puddle of laughs."
"If you like (stop-motion) animation this film is a definite recommendation. The animation itself could've been better, but the whole setting is just too much fun to pass on."
"If you have a soft spot for claymation or you're just looking for a zany comedy, A Town Called Panic will not disappoint."
"He falls back to his regular weirdness and dry, absurd comedy. It all leads up to a rewarding ending, leaving you with a fuzzy feeling and a sense of chill bliss."
"Very much recommended if you've been enjoying the epic productions of the previous decade."
