"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."
"Still, the feeling remains that at times Rubber's Lover could've been just that little bit more insane."
"Goth is a strong film, elegantly transporting its audience to the universe of two unique individuals finding each other in a world that isn't really their own."
"The Bow is a pretty logical evolution in Ki-duk's career. It includes many of the themes and stylistic choices from his older films while still lacking the slick execution of his newer ones."
"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."
"From a professional and critical point of view, Magnolia is probably PTA's most accomplished film. It's a three hour long ensemble film that feels playful, energetic and upbeat."
"Bangkok Dangerous is a film that's surviving the test of time surprisingly well."
"Springtime in a Small Town is a stunning, subtle and elegant experience that serves as a perfect introduction to Tian's body of work."
"Perfume still feels quite modern and contemporary because none of its audiovisual trickery was used gratuitously."
"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."
"Postmen in the Mountains is one of China's hidden gems, made by a director who sprinkles his films with soul and warmth. It's an easy recommend, if you can stand the slow pacing that is."
"If you're a fan of Delicatessen and you haven't seen The City of Lost Children it's really a no-brainer."
"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."
"There are some things here that don't work as well as they should, but they are completely eclipsed by the parts that do."
"Pieta is a pretty complete package. The film looks great, has a superb soundtrack, two extremely impressive leads and a boatload of symbolism for those who enjoy that kind of thing."
