"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."
"It's a dark, brooding, and weird film that still manages to out-gross some modern horror flicks, even when it feels weird describing Eraserhead as a straight-up horror film."
"Sijie Dai made an impressive film."
"Bangkok Dangerous is a film that's surviving the test of time surprisingly well."
"It's impossible to univocally recommend a film like this, but fans of experimental, dark and uncompromising cinema should really check this one out (if you haven't already)."
"The build-up is strong, the scares are effective and while It may not be as fancy or orchestrated as some of the newer offspring, it actually uses that defect to its advantage."
"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."
"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"
"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."
"In between the shorts are some nicely animated intermissions, properly introducing each film."
"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."
"If you're looking for a stellar martial arts flick though, Fearless is a safe bet."
"The Great Yokai War was Miike's first venture into big budget cinema aimed at a younger audience."
"First Time is a superb example of how to do romance right, without necessarily ending up in arthouse territory."
"Garden of Words is everything you'd expect from a Shinkai film."
"Meat Grinder's strength lies with the excellent mix of ingredients put into the film."
"Ninja Kids!!! is the perfect example of demented Japanese kids entertainment that's weird enough to appeal to adults, at least those with some memories of their lost childhood."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Perfume still feels quite modern and contemporary because none of its audiovisual trickery was used gratuitously."
"The first fifteen minutes where a little though, but once Sumida starts his descent into madness the film never back down."
"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)."
"If you think it all sounds rather dull than that's perfectly understandable. The thing is, it really isn't. Breathe In, Breathe Out is a beautiful, pure, subtle and heart-warming drama."
