Baober in Love review

"Brace yourself for a sweet romance with a nasty sting and you'll be hard-pressed to think bad of this little gem that would turn out to be the start of a new Chinese cinematic movement."

Getting Wild with Our Monkey

147
Getting Wild with Our Monkey review

"Getting Wild With Our Monkey is a seriously demented, yet absolutely fun trip. A film that needs to be experienced rather than understood."

Requiem for a Dream

146
Requiem for a Dream review

"Aronofsky struck gold with this one. Personally I still prefer Pi, but Requiem for a Dream is a much more accessible film while retaining Aronofsky's trademark style."

Angel-A

145
Angel-A review

"From the outside it may appear a little stuffy (French, black and white photography, jazzy music), but underneath that layer of arthouse polish lies an entertaining, smart and refreshing little film."

1778 Stories of Me and My Wife review

"Hoshi creates a wonderfully magical drama, serving just the right amount of drama, geekiness, magical realism and love for his characters."

Chasuke's Journey

143
Chasuke's Journey review

"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."

Revenge: A Love Story

142
Revenge: A Love Story review

"Revenge: A Love Story plays like a modern Hong Kong version of Se7en, only better, more tense and not as restrained as Fincher's film."

Diary

141
Diary review

"Diary is a skillful, beautiful and impressive little mindfuck thriller. With a very limited cast and one single location Oxide Pang still manages to go all-out and deliver his best film to date."

22 Mei

22 Mei review

"I just hope the poor reception won't hinder Mortier in his next project. The man deserves to keep on filming and to grow as a film maker."

Steamboy

Steamboy review

"Steamboy is a treat for animation fans everywhere. Simple enough to not alienate Western audiences, superbly animated and spilling over with lush details."

Legend of the Demon Cat

138
Legend of the Demon Cat review

"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."

The Last Circus

137
The Last Circus review

"It's a technical marvel, an unearthly combination of pulp and arthouse and equally moving and entertaining without ever becoming cheap."

Tokyo Gore Police

136
Tokyo Gore Police review

"Tokyo Gore Police is gory, fun, funny, weird and insane, but at the same time the realm in which it exists start to grow on you."

The Wall-Passer

The Wall-Passer review

"Lovely film which comes highly recommended. Don't miss it if you run into it. It's hard to predict whether you'll like it, but the experience of watching it is interesting enough."

It Comes review

"Delivers on its genre premise, is different enough to keep you on your toes and is impeccably executed, with beautiful cinematography, strong use of its score and boasting stellar performances."

Bitter Honey

129
Bitter Honey review

"It's lush looking, well acted, aptly scored and surprising at every turn. It's quirky and giddish, but at the same time it's also dark, brooding and lingering."

Big Man Japan

128
Big Man Japan review

"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."

Akira

127
Akira review

"Akira is nearing its 30th birthday, but it's still a marvel of a film. While the 80s feel is definitely there, it doesn't feel like it aged a lot."

Air Doll

126
Air Doll review

"A warm, lovingly crafted drama, with a spectacular central performance and fine cinematography, leaning quite heavily on its fantastical premise while using it to question more prominent issues."
