"Mandy is a visually overpowering, gritty and gory revenge slaughterfest, fronted by one of cinema's boldest mad man actors."
"I clearly prefer this film over Amélie, if only for the darker and freakier setting."
"For a 10-year old animation film The Place Promised in Our Early Days still looks and feels remarkably fresh."
"Together with the gore, there's enough freaky weirdness and downright perversion to keep most seasoned horror fans happy."
"A New Life is not a film that is fun to watch. But it is an impressive film that succeeds as no other in putting down a vile, bleak and uneasy atmosphere."
"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."
"I hope this isn't Refn's final experimental film as he shows true talent for this kind of thing."
"But most of all, Where The Wild Things Are is a magical, fantastical film presented in a pretty realistic and believable way."
"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."
"A small, delicate and subtle little film that feels fresher than its peers and excels in just about every way possible."
"First Time is a superb example of how to do romance right, without necessarily ending up in arthouse territory."
"Boyle's breakthrough film is pretty crude and edgy, but it's also a cinematic wonderland about a bunch of drug-craving friends, drenched in thick accents."
"The film looks good, sounds great, sports an incredible opening animation sequence and boasts a list of superb actors."
"Smuggler is an extremely entertaining slice of dark entertainment. Littered with weird and freaky characters, the four chapters play out well and make for an interesting finale."
"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)."
