"Sijie Dai made an impressive film."
"So yeah, Noé could've opted to make a more pensive, explanatory version of the story, but that's not really his style."
"That is, if you appreciate the vulgarities. Even though the film itself is quite refined, its character are everything but."
"Brother is not an American Kitano film, it's a Kitano film set in America. If you liked Sonatine, Hana-bi and 3-4x Jugatsu then you really can't go wrong with this one."
"Antichrist is atmospheric, moody, technically impressive and pretty mysterious."
"It's one of the few films that manages to have a physical effect on its audiences, something I can truly appreciate. To endure is to overcome, and once the film is finished you do feel somehow reborn."
"Ritchie perfected his signature style in this film. Lots of visual trickery, a solid soundtrack, spiffy dialogues, a convoluted plot and a big cast full of colorful characters."
"Perfume still feels quite modern and contemporary because none of its audiovisual trickery was used gratuitously."
"Pistol Opera is not the easiest of films. You have to accept that the story is a mere hook for some cinematic fun while Suzuki takes a little run with his audience."
"The progression from winter to spring is clearly positive, so unless you're completely stumped by the actions of the characters I see little motivation to call this a depressing film."
"There are some things here that don't work as well as they should, but they are completely eclipsed by the parts that do."
"Strings is a film that would probably appeal best to fans of animation, though I'd recommend it to everyone who likes to watch something outside the norm."
"The Great Yokai War was Miike's first venture into big budget cinema aimed at a younger audience."
"Tokyo Fist is somewhat of a forgotten Tsukamoto film, which is weird considering its many qualities."
"It's cute, charming, funny and perfect for a warm summer evening. Don't expect anything deep or challenging, just let the film's charm sweep you away."
"As long as you don't expect a new Amélie chances are you'll love this film."
"Nishimura adepts can rejoice, Helldriver is up there with the best, sporting roughly two hours of madness, hilariously out-of-place social criticism and tons and tons of liters of blood."
"Nakajima's first film is not for everybody. It combines the rawness of films like Pornostar and even Irréversible with the poetry and drama of films like Tokyo.Sora."
"Elephant hasn't lost any of its impact over time."
"If you're a fan of Delicatessen and you haven't seen The City of Lost Children it's really a no-brainer."
