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."

Container review

"It's impossible to univocally recommend a film like this, but fans of experimental, dark and uncompromising cinema should really check this one out (if you haven't already)."

Design of Death

"The actors carry a disarming charm, the humor is actually funny and the film as a whole is a worthwhile audiovisual experience."

Your Name

Your Name review

"The real-world setting mixed with slight fantasy elements makes the film a bit more accessible compared to Shinkai's earlier films."

Sonatine

170
Sonatine review

"Even though the films Kitano made prior to Sonatine aren't bad at all, Sonatine is the first true testament to his genius."

Norwegian Wood

"It's beautifully shot, wonderfully scored and aptly acted. It scores well in just about every department, showcasing the progress Tran has made as a director."

Isn't Anyone Alive? review

"Ishii truly reinvents himself here and comes with a film that's just as unique as his previous work, only very different in tone."

Trava: Fist Planet

166
Trava: Fist Planet review

"I used to compare Trava: Fist Planet to Dead Leaves, nowadays I'm not sure if that's a fair comparison."

The Mole Song

165
The Mole Song review

"There's enough madness here to fill 3 or 4 separate films."

The Wind Rises

164
The Wind Rises review

"The Wind Rises is more than worthy closing act. It's one of Miyazaki's best films, a stunning ode to passion and perseverance in the face of a looming war."

Casshern

163
Casshern review

"While Kiriya does his best to make that happen, his approach simply isn't popular enough to turn Casshern into a universally revered film."

Mutant Girls Squad

159
Mutant Girls Squad review

"If you still haven't seen enough bodily mutations, strange nose guns or creative ways to slice people in half (or more parts), this is a film that cannot be missed."

Mr. Nobody

158
Mr. Nobody review

"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."

Memories of Matsuko

157
Memories of Matsuko review

"The blend of an explicit and vibrant stylistic signature and upbeat musical numbers with a deeply tragic narrative is impossible to explain, it just has to be experienced first-hand."

Funuke, Show Some Love You Losers

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

Requiem for a Dream

154

"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."

Takeshis'

Takeshis' review

"The good thing is that it's not all just an ode to himself, Kitano doesn't mind making some fun of himself or the people around him."
