"My only problem with Mullholland Dr. is that it just isn't as special anymore as it used to be."
"3-Iron is a silent journey, following two characters who don't talk to each other directly, but understand each other's feelings all too well. To be a witness to that feels like something special."
"Somehow Until the Lights Come Back never found its way into the mainstream, even though it's a pretty accessible film. It's sweet, upbeat, feel good, a tad long maybe but never slow or boring."
"As long as you don't expect a new Amélie chances are you'll love this film."
"A must for Kitano fans and probably art fans alike (as all paintings were made by Kitano himself and are apparently based on existing paintings)."
"Kotoko is another work of love."
"Neo-Tokyo (together with Robot Carnival, another 1987 anthology sporting promising names) helped to pave the way for a respectable stream of animated anthology films coming out of Japan."
"If you're looking for a stellar martial arts flick though, Fearless is a safe bet."
"Elephant hasn't lost any of its impact over time."
"If you think it all sounds rather dull than that's perfectly understandable. The thing is, it really isn't. Breathe In, Breathe Out is a beautiful, pure, subtle and heart-warming drama."
"Punch-Drunk Love is a harmless romantic comedy and can definitely be enjoyed as such. But it's also offers a unique audiovisual experience."
"Together with Sparrow, To proves himself to be one of the most interesting directors in cinema today. His genre films are strong, original and seamlessly executed and seem to lack any weak points."
"Ninja Kids!!! is the perfect example of demented Japanese kids entertainment that's weird enough to appeal to adults, at least those with some memories of their lost childhood."
"It's a very tiny quibble that never detracts while watching the film, but it's a feeling that keeps creeping up on me as time goes by."
"It's best to leave all hope of a decent storyline behind when you want to watch this film. Gerry is all about the experience, ignoring the rest and foregoing all compromises."
"It's good to see this kind of fast-paced martial arts cinema being revived."
"Doyle and Umebayashi do a great job, Leung and Cheung are stellar, but they cannot hide the fact that Kar Wai grew even more skilled after completing this film."
"Those who really want to see the film will be required to be a little adventurous, but fans of Ishii and/or Asano would do good to go through the trouble."
"Takahata is one of the absolute masters of animation."
"Death Trance didn't perform very well internationally, possibly explaining why this is Shimomura's only film to date."
