"Short Peace proudly honors the the rich tradition of Japan's animated anthologies. It's up there with the very best, bustling with innovation and creative freedom."
"One of the most uniquely satisfying animes ever released. A film that can only be compared with a very concise selection of otherwise incomparable animation projects."
"Eduardo Casanova made a stunning first feature. It's hyper-stylized, it's extremely daring and surprisingly well-balanced."
"Personally I really loved pk.com.cn. It's a production in touch with the state of mind of young people today while keeping a level of professionalism not often found in their creations."
"Oshii's film remains a monument of film making that still knows to impress and entrance. It's a superb sci-fi film, boasting tons of highly atmospheric scenes and a good story to boot"
"An exciting trip down a world that isn't quite our own, blending different genres and styles into one chaotic whole."
"It's a wonderfully stylized, strongly realized and often completely baffling film that has both heart and brains and lacks any kind of commercial filter."
"It's original, quirky, stylish and otherworldly. A tough cookie on the outside, but incredibly rich in taste and texture on the inside."
"Playfully poetic, magically serene and pleasantly dreamy, watching the film is a calming experience that puts you right in there with the characters while providing a superb aesthetic frame."
"If this sounds boring to you Rabbits is probably not worth the trouble of pursuing. It's a simple, one-trick project that offers very little in the form of tangible content."
"The result is a strong, unique and captivating film that draws a few parallels to older classics, but stands well on its own. A true delight, sadly looked over by most people."
"Visitor Q is a crazy film. It contains some truly disturbing and shocking scenes, but the light tone and underlying concept betray a smarter film. It's not just shock cinema made to repulse."
"People not liking adhd animation, purely visceral cinema or semi-random pop chaos, do stay away from this film."
"Tsuburo no Gara is first-grade cyberpunk cinema."
"Pi is a nifty little trip down the path of obsession."
"Finally there is Atsushi Kaneko's Crawling Bugs, a more cartoonesque short about the perverse obsession of a fan for a stage actress."
"It was a long time since I last watched Talking Head and I wasn't really sure how well I could trust my initial response to the film."
"Whatever your expectations, Vinyan will stay with you. It's an experience not easily forgotten, tailored to perfection by Du Welz and his team. It's brooding, intense and filled with individuality."
"If you want to see a more experimental and serious side of Miike, this film is definitely recommended."
"There is not a dull moment to be found. The film is littered with funny anecdotes, cute visual jokes and some very telling scenes."
"Pop Skull is an intense experience that will take you to rather unpleasant places in a pretty bold yet straightforward manner, but when it hits you the effect is tremendous."
"This is a typical Japanese drama infused and enriched with plenty of Tsukamoto goodness. The result is haunting, morbid, poetic and beautiful all at once."
"A film with a very authentic (Japanese) anime feel, yet it benefits greatly from Arias' outside influences. It's superbly animated, sports a terrific score and tells a truly intriguing story."
"A peculiar mix of slapstick, surreal comedy and meditative arthouse, with plenty of Oshii quirks, superb visuals and a strong soundtrack to make it one of the most unique projects of the 80s."
"Not the ideal film for a fun evening on the couch, but it reaches well beyond the boundaries of traditional animation films and delivers an experience you'll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else"
