"The raw and unrelenting bouts are really spectacular and make this one of the best action flicks I've seen in a long time."
" If you're in the mood for action or lots of plot twists, there's little here for you. But if you're up for a little variation on the Ghibli magic, this film might be a pretty good bet to make."
"A wonderful collection of shorts, visually pleasing, fun to watch and from time to time refreshingly weird."
"Metropia is a film that will appeal to people who like a dystopian future coupled with a craving for unique animation."
"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."
"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."
"So yeah, Noé could've opted to make a more pensive, explanatory version of the story, but that's not really his style."
"The first fifteen minutes where a little though, but once Sumida starts his descent into madness the film never back down."
"Raging Phoenix is another very solid entry in the Thai martial arts selection."
"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."
"Nakajima's first film is not for everybody. It combines the rawness of films like Pornostar and even IrrÃ©versible with the poetry and drama of films like Tokyo.Sora."
"This is not a very happy film, nor is it very subtle."
"Elephant hasn't lost any of its impact over time."
"The film has aged surprisingly well. The action scenes are still amazing, Reno and Portman continue to impress and there's an edgy playfulness that keeps the film from becoming overly serious."
"As a martial arts fan, The Protector is the kind of movie I love watching. It puts every single baht in making its fight scenes bigger, crazier and more inventive."
"When it comes to capturing a person as a whole he did a splendid job. The Go Master is a rather slow and moody film, but there's beauty pouring from its seams."
"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."
"Springtime in a Small Town is a stunning, subtle and elegant experience that serves as a perfect introduction to Tian's body of work."
"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."
"Bangkok Dangerous is a film that's surviving the test of time surprisingly well."
"Sijie Dai made an impressive film."
"A small, delicate and subtle little film that feels fresher than its peers and excels in just about every way possible."
"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."
"Meat Grinder's strength lies with the excellent mix of ingredients put into the film."
