"Dog Bite Dog is a film that held up respectfully over time. It was one of the first films to make me dig deeper into the endless pit of Hong Kong cinema and it still holds it ground well."
"It's a cute and interesting fantasy tale with a darker edge, never outstaying its welcome and leaving a fresh impression."
"It's definitely not the easiest of films, the first hour is filled with unsympathetic characters doing ugly things to each other."
"The Grand Budapest Hotel may not be laugh out loud funny for the most part of its running time, it left me with a big, wide grin on my face afterwards."
"The best thing about this anthology is that you really can't do justice to the visual beauty with simple screen caps."
"It's only a minor critique on a film that sizzles and sparkles from start to finish. Leconte's approach is fresh and adventurous."
" It's a lovely little comedy with a lot of heart, a lot of warmth and plenty of interesting and original ideas."
"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."
"This film is 200% Kar Wai and comes unmistakably from his hands, annoying actors were turned into lovable characters and his film proved once again that movies are an audiovisual experience"
"This is not a very happy film, nor is it very subtle."
"Wings of Honneamise is a largely forgotten anime gem."
"It presents a whole new way of applying cyberpunk aesthetics to a film subject, mixing it with a documentary take on one of the most interesting characters I've ever seen in film."
"Steamboy is a treat for animation fans everywhere. Simple enough to not alienate Western audiences, superbly animated and spilling over with lush details."
"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."
"Beautifully animated and scored, sporting a strong cast of characters, an intriguing plot and a fair selection of interesting themes, Sky Crawlers is Oshii's most complete film to date."
"Don't expect a typical horror film going into Dead Daughters. But expect to be impressed by the atmospheric skills of Ruminov. It's nice to see films like these coming out of Russia."
"Three Times is a slow burner. Even though the film is split in three different parts, there isn't much in the way of storyline or dramatic events."
"I used to compare Trava: Fist Planet to Dead Leaves, nowadays I'm not sure if that's a fair comparison."
"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."
"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."
