Natural Born Killers

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."

Cloverfield

299
Cloverfield review

"The found footage mould is perfect for a film like Cloverfield. It puts the audience right in the middle of the disaster with the same knowledge as its protagonists."

First Time

298
First Time review

"First Time is a superb example of how to do romance right, without necessarily ending up in arthouse territory."

Gerry

297
Gerry review

"It's best to leave all hope of a decent storyline behind when you want to watch this film. Gerry is all about the experience, ignoring the rest and foregoing all compromises."

Helldriver

296
Helldriver review

"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."

Bangkok Dangerous

295
Bangkok Dangerous review

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

Upstream Color

294
Upstream Color review

"Carruth is one of America's biggest talents. His involvement in his films goes deep and it shows."

Vidocq

293
Vidocq review

"There are some things here that don't work as well as they should, but they are completely eclipsed by the parts that do."

The Protector

292
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."

Pistol Opera

291
Pistol Opera review

"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 Bow

290
The Bow review

"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."

A New Life

289
A New Life review

"A New Life is not a film that is fun to watch. But it is an impressive film that succeeds as no other in putting down a vile, bleak and uneasy atmosphere."

19

288
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)."

Brother

287
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."

Juliets

286
Juliets review

"In between the shorts are some nicely animated intermissions, properly introducing each film."

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."

Strings

284
Strings review

"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."

My Blueberry Nights

283
My Blueberry Nights review

"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"

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover

282
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 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."

Micmacs

280
Micmacs review

"Think Amélie but with a darker, more adventurous and boyish edge. It's a good 100 minutes of fun in a recognizable but still outlandish version of Paris, hosted by a gang of endearing weirdos."

Garden of Words

279
Garden of Words review

"Garden of Words is everything you'd expect from a Shinkai film."

Porco Rosso

278
Porco Rosso review

"Porco Rosso remains one of my favorite Miyazaki films. Personally I prefer his softer, smaller films over his big epics, as they are more aimed at atmosphere and less at getting a message across."

Chandmani Sum

277
Chandmani Sum review

"Hartsuiker succeeds in his mission, as he delivers a visually accomplished document with a superb soundtrack, transporting you to a world not quite like ours."

Dead Daughters

276
Dead Daughters review

"Don't expect a typical horror film going into Dead Daughters. But expect to be impressed by the atmospheric skills of Ruminov. It's nice to see films like these coming out of Russia."
