Ten Nights of Dreams

Ten Nights of Dreams review

"A wonderful collection of shorts, visually pleasing, fun to watch and from time to time refreshingly weird."

Raging Phoenix

324
Raging Phoenix review

"Raging Phoenix is another very solid entry in the Thai martial arts selection."

This World of Ours

323
This World of Ours review

"Nakajima's first film is not for everybody. It combines the rawness of films like Pornostar and even Irréversible with the poetry and drama of films like Tokyo.Sora."

I Stand Alone

322
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."

Himizu

321
Himizu review

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

Metropia

320
Metropia review

"Metropia is a film that will appeal to people who like a dystopian future coupled with a craving for unique animation."

The Chinese Botanist's Daughters

319
The Chinese Botanist's Daughters review

"Sijie Dai made an impressive film."

Pieta

318
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."

About Love

317
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."

Magnolia

316
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."

The Professional

315
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."

Goth

314
Goth review

"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."

Postmen in the Mountains

313
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."

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

312
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer review

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

Springtime in a Small Town

311
Springtime in a Small Town review

"Springtime in a Small Town is a stunning, subtle and elegant experience that serves as a perfect introduction to Tian's body of work."

Eraserhead

310
Eraserhead review

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

964 Pinocchio

309
964 Pinocchio review

"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."

Achilles and the Tortoise

308
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)."

The Go Master

307
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."

Meat Grinder

306
Meat Grinder review

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

Minuscule

305
Minuscule review

"It's cute, charming, funny and perfect for a warm summer evening. Don't expect anything deep or challenging, just let the film's charm sweep you away."

Fearless

304
Fearless review

"If you're looking for a stellar martial arts flick though, Fearless is a safe bet."

Fires on the Plain

303
Fires on the Plain review

"This is not a very happy film, nor is it very subtle."

Dream

302
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."

Until the Lights Come Back

301
Until the Lights Come Back review

"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."
