Himeanole

Himeanole review

"From the smart casting to the predictable cinematography and the discrete score, Himeanole is a film that lulls you to sleep, only to start kicking you in the gut after the halfway mark."

Lu over the Wall

349
Lu over the Wall review

"Lu over the Wall is the perfect blend of Yuasa and Miyazaki. A film that feels creative and original, but is also sweet, warm and comfortable at the same time."

No Man's Land

348
No Man's Land review

"There's a whole lot of U Turn in here, a bit of Coens maybe, a dash of Western flavour and topped off with plenty of Chinese touches."

Zoe

347
Zoe review

"Zoe is extremely stylish, sports superb performances and combines smarts with relevance. It's a well thought-out mix of genres that dazzles from start to finish."

R100

346
R100 review

"R100 is a crazy film, full of deadpan comedy, weird references and an internal logic that convinces without making any actual sense."

Sakuran

345
Sakuran review

"Sakuran is a cool film, if only because it gives you something worth looking at for its entire running time."

Comet

344
Comet review

"Comet is quite the calling card for Esmail. It may be his first feature film, but it feels very polished and firmly directed."

Blue Spring

343
Blue Spring review

"Blue Spring is well-balanced, featuring a great cast, intriguing characters and a director with not only a clear vision, but also the ability to execute that vision flawlessly."

A Writer's Odyssey

342
A Writer's Odyssey review

"It's grand and epic, technically extremely proficient, it delivers fresh and exciting fantasy realms to explore and the pacing is excellent. A landmark for fantasy cinema"

As the Gods Will

341
As the Gods Will review

"As the Gods Will is a typical Miike flick in the sense that it's pretty much pointless to compare it to other films out there."

The Book of Eli

340
The Book of Eli review

"That said, The Book Of Eli is definitely one of the best things I've seen coming from Hollywood this year. It's all style and atmosphere, wonderfully executed and well acted."

Innocence

339
Innocence review

"That said, Innocence is not a very easy film to recommend. It's quite stoic, mysterious and enigmatic, both plotwise and stylistically."

Love/Exposure

338
Love/Exposure review

"Don't let that hold you back though. Love Exposure is a great experience, offering lots of weirdness, fun and shock while never boring its audience."

Daughters

337
Daughters review

"Daughters breathes new life into a genre that's become pretty stale of late, by updating its stylistic vocabulary while making sure all its dramatic beats hit the mark."

Wonogawa

336
Wonogawa review

"A film with superb designs, overflowing with creative ideas, more than enough intriguing lore to fill at least three films and executed in a way that hides most of its financial struggles."

Wake Up and Die

335
Wake Up and Die review

"Instead the film leans heavily on the learning process, which goes well beyond the simple A/B testing you'd expect from a concept like this."

An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn

334
An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn review

"You could read a million reviews and still not know what to expect. There's also no telling whether you'll end up liking it, but I'm pretty confident that this will be a unique experience"

A.I. Rising

333
A.I. Rising review

"Seasoned genre fans are sure to appreciate the industrial atmosphere, the in-depth exploration of futuristic themes and the mix of strong genre elements with a layer of social commentary."

Blood of Rebirth

332
Blood of Rebirth review

"I still need to see Hanging Garden and Unchain, that said I believe Blood of Rebirth belongs to Toyoda's best output to date and could be the start of something beautiful."

Shadow

331
Shadow review

"Shadow's eye-popping visuals amaze from start to finish and with all the other elements adequately covered there are plenty of stand-out scenes that may become pillars of the genre."

Mozu

330
Mozu review

"If you like 120 minutes of stylish showdowns, explosive action scenes and over-the-top characters, Eiichiro Hasumi delivers one of the best films in ages."

Guns Akimbo

329
Guns Akimbo review

"Guns Akimbo is extremely energetic, in your face and funny, packing a couple of neat surprises, a splendid central duo and enough action to fill at least two 90-minute films."

Goemon

328
Goemon review

"Kiriya serves a roller-coaster ride, but one that makes sure that the better moments can be relived late at night while lying in bed with your eyes closed."

Gantz:O

327
Gantz:O review

"Gantz:O is brutal, action-packed and a bit mad in the head."

Young Dudes

326
Young Dudes review

"It's a shame it takes a little too long before the film gets really going, because Chen is obviously a very talented director."
