"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."
"Meat Grinder's strength lies with the excellent mix of ingredients put into the film."
"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"
"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."

"The Great Yokai War was Miike's first venture into big budget cinema aimed at a younger audience."
"That is, if you appreciate the vulgarities. Even though the film itself is quite refined, its character are everything but."

"Sijie Dai made an impressive film."
"Antichrist is atmospheric, moody, technically impressive and pretty mysterious."
"Strange Circus is a stellar film that still counts as one of Sono's absolute best efforts to date. The subject matter is rather risqué though and Sono's approach is far from subtle."
"I must say that Postmen in the Mountains lost little of its appeal over the years."
"If you're a fan of Delicatessen and you haven't seen The City of Lost Children it's really a no-brainer."
