I Stand Alone

I Stand Alone review

"So yeah, Noé could've opted to make a more pensive, explanatory version of the story, but that's not really his style."

Natural Born Killers

299
Natural Born Killers review

"It's a pretty crazy ride that revels in the violence on display, while at the same time lashing out at the media's sensationalism and the audience's lack of critical standards."

Postmen in the Mountains

298
Postmen in the Mountains review

"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."

The Protector

297
The Protector review

"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."

The Go Master

296
The Go Master review

"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."

The Great Yokai War

295
The Great Yokai War review

"The Great Yokai War was Miike's first venture into big budget cinema aimed at a younger audience."

Meat Grinder

294
Meat Grinder review

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

Elephant

293
Elephant review

"Elephant hasn't lost any of its impact over time."

The Professional

292
The Professional review

"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."

The Chinese Botanist's Daughters

291
The Chinese Botanist's Daughters review

"Sijie Dai made an impressive film."

Himizu

290
Himizu review

"The first fifteen minutes where a little though, but once Sumida starts his descent into madness the film never back down."

Eraserhead

289
Eraserhead review

"It's hard to ignore the toll that time has taken on this film."

Dream

288
Dream review

"Since Bin-Jip, only Shi Gan was a small disappointment. Apart from that one, Ki-duk seems to be on a roll with a string of near-masterpieces almost uncontested by any other director."

About Love

287
About Love review

"If romance isn't your thing this anthology probably isn't going to persuade you, but within the genre this is definitely one of the better offerings out there."

19

286
19 review

"Even though its appeal might be limited to a rather small group of film fans, I still feel 19 is undervalued (and incredibly underwatched)."

Snatch.

285
Snatch. review

"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."

Achilles and the Tortoise

284
Achilles and the Tortoise review

"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)."

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

283
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer review

"Perfume still feels quite modern and contemporary because none of its audiovisual trickery was used gratuitously."

Pieta

282
Pieta review

"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."

The Wayward Cloud

281
The Wayward Cloud review

"The acting is top-notch, the camera work is spot on and Tsai's sense of humor is both unique and funny. Add to that one of the most stupefying and epic endings and you get my favorite Tsai."

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover

280
The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover review

"That is, if you appreciate the vulgarities. Even though the film itself is quite refined, its character are everything but."

The Consequences of Love

279
The Consequences of Love review

"Le Conseguenze dell'Amora is the perfect film for people who aren't really too taken by the classic mafia films and are yearning for a more modern version of the Italian underground antics."

Magnolia

278
Magnolia review

"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

277
Bangkok Dangerous review

"Bangkok Dangerous is a film that's surviving the test of time surprisingly well."

Brother

276
Brother review

"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."
