"Bronson's form is not your typical choice for a biopic, or for a film in general. This might put people off, especially when they're expecting a more serious version of his story."
"I experienced Moebius as a pretty intense drama, a downwards spiral invoked by a family acting purely on their urges and instincts."
"A remarkable blend of arthouse and commercial cinema that strikes a perfect balance between entertainment and cinematic wonder."
"Needless to say, this turns Izo into a pretty tough experience. As the minutes pass and the bodies pile up, the film starts to weigh on its audience."
"I love Primer for its calm and mysterious atmosphere, its exploration of the wonders and dangers of a scientific breakthrough that can't really be explained."
"Flashy, funny, weird and in-your-face. I'm an instant Wuershan fan and hope he'll keep doing stuff like this"
"The animation is detailed, the direction solid and the film avoids any kind of filler, keeping the running time below the 90-minute limit."
"For me Renaissance is a superb audiovisual experience. A grand sci-fi flick that sets up an intriguing glimpse of the future."
"Fireworks is a real delight. It's a simple, accessible film but with enough unique elements to keep you surprised and interested. The film is also the perfect showcase for Kitano's versatility."
"Suffering of Ninko is the kind of film that made me fall in love with Japanese cinema all these years ago. It's different, fun, it looks great and its overall very creative."
"Get past the cultural oddities though and you'll find an absolutely gorgeous looking genre film, by far one of the best horror films to come out of Hong Kong in a long, long time."
"It seems Tanaka is back where he belongs, after going through some rougher patches in the late 00's. Chasuke's Journey is visually stunning, well acted, original and most of all unique."
"The film is a visual wonder that offers plenty of entertainment. While the story is adequate and the acting on point, it's really just a trip through the magnificent universe that Chen conjures up."
"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."
"Ponyo is a feast for all fans that were wishing Miyazaki would return to his pre-Mononoke era, and for those people it might even reach the same heights as Totoro did."
"A film like Mother! is impossible to recommend, but it's also a film that needs to be experienced regardless of appreciation."
"Overall Dead End Run is a fun, varied and classy anthology film where Sogo Ishii allows himself to show his more experimental side while leaving room for some softer touches."
"The rest of the film is pure genius though. It's stylish, classy, funny and revolting. The acting is top notch, the film looks incredible and the soundtrack adds a lot of atmosphere."
"Here's to hoping we'll ever see Kon's final film (Dream Machine) completed."
"The Taste of Tea is a lovingly executed ode to laziness, boredom and feeling at ease."
"A must see this one, if only to marvel at the insane creations and the wacky surreal scenes that come from a silly subject turned serious."
"Inside is a film that will please horror and gore fans all around. It starts of slow but it doesn't take long before it all turns bad and doesn't let you go until the splattering finale."
"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."
"I'm excited to see where Wong will go from here. Guilty proves she is more than capable to stand on her own two feet, delivering a film that is powerful, gripping and skilfully made."
"Alléluia is definitely a film that grew on me. The crescendo is skilfully executed and even continued after the film had finished."
