"This is genre cinema with the signature of an auteur, mood cinema with smarts and depth. Lush visuals, a superb soundtrack and slick performances only make it better."
"Flashy, funny, weird and in-your-face. I'm an instant Wuershan fan and hope he'll keep doing stuff like this"
"Revolver may be Ritchie's lowest ranking film (let's just forget about Swept Away), but it's actually one of his best. It's slick, stylistically impressive and atmospherically cohesive."
"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."
"While Kiriya does his best to make that happen, his approach simply isn't popular enough to turn Casshern into a universally revered film."
"The world created in III is mystical, mysterious and eerie. The story is merely an excuse for some fantastical set pieces and superb audiovisual journeys into the minds of the protagonists."
"For me Renaissance is a superb audiovisual experience. A grand sci-fi flick that sets up an intriguing glimpse of the future."
"If you liked the first Crank film but thought it was just a little too tame, this sequel will cater to your needs."
"A world of unmatched cinematographic beauty opens itself and provides one of the most stunningly beautiful action films ever released."
"Yuasa delivers a wildly original, splendidly executed and surprisingly emotional animation that defies categorization and comparison. Mind Game is a film that needs to be experienced."
"The animation is detailed, the direction solid and the film avoids any kind of filler, keeping the running time below the 90-minute limit."
"The film is smart, looks and sounds great and is filled to the brim with creativity. It is immensely funny, even if you can't catch all the details on the first viewing."
"Time is slowly taking away some of the impact of Memories, but there is still plenty of beauty here to keep you amazed for the entire running time."
"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."
"Get past the cultural oddities, and you'll find an absolutely gorgeous looking genre film, by far one of the best and most accomplished horror films to have come out of Hong Kong in a long, long time."
"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."
"The Kizumonogatari experience is impossible to recommend, rather it has to be experienced. Reiketsu-hen provides perfect closure to this film series and conjures up the genius of the first film"
"Powerful, gripping and skillfully made. If you're a fan of Hong Kong's harsher thrillers this is definitely for you, if you like directors like Pou-Soi Cheang don't think twice about seeing this one."
"It's an audiovisual masterpiece, bearing an interesting plot, powerful emotions and some poignant social commentary. Nakashima keeps growing with every film."
"If you're an anime and/or sci-fi fan and you're up for a little Gojira action mixed with hardcore sci-fi, this is by far the best entry in the franchise so far. Bring on the sequels."
"Debie's cinematography is first class, the soundtrack is spot on, the dance routines are pretty impressive, performances are great, and the final hour is Noé at his finest/darkest."
"Interesting themes, blissful artwork, a stellar soundtrack and the perfect ending make for an amazing film that didn't lose much of its shine and polish over the years."
"It bears the same charm and defects as the first Tetsuo and some very minor extra glitches, but the core is still there. An assault to the senses in pretty much every way possible."
"With a superb soundtrack, two killer leads and some visual panache, Kumakiri delivers a film that has the power to linger. That is, if you can stomach the punches My Man dishes out."
"The mix of drama and mystery is brilliantly executed. The symbolism might lack subtlety, but Sugimori goes a long way in compensating that with strong imagery that will burn itself deep in your mind."
