"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."
"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."
"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."
"Steamboy is a treat for animation fans everywhere. Simple enough to not alienate Western audiences, superbly animated and spilling over with lush details."
"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."
"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)."
"Compared to RRNNM just about everything is more polished. The visuals look tastier, the soundtrack is even more profoundly present and the acting is just about perfect."
"The found footage mould is perfect for a film like Cloverfield. It puts the audience right in the middle of the disaster with the same knowledge as its protagonists."
"Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels remains my favorite Ritchie film."
"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."
"For a while Versus was one of my all-time favorite films, but the recent wave of Japanese splatter films changed things a little."

"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."
"Tengan's Sekia is a little gem."
"There is a clear possibility of oversaturation though. The World of Kanako isn't subtle and doesn't offer much in the way of breathers."
"With Isabella Ho-Cheung Pang combines strong drama with a superb sense of aesthetics. It's easily his most accomplished film to date where everything feels just right."
"Monsters Club is my favorite Toyoda so far. The film is a beauty, the atmosphere is tangible and the imagery unique."
"Hiroki delivers one of the most natural, confident and empathic dramas I've ever laid eyes on. On the outside it appears to be a simple film, but underneath lies a wealth of emotions"
"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."
"Ishii truly reinvents himself here and comes with a film that's just as unique as his previous work, only very different in tone."
"It's a technical marvel, an unearthly combination of pulp and arthouse and equally moving and entertaining without ever becoming cheap."
"There's enough madness here to fill 3 or 4 separate films."
