Greatful Dead review

"Uchida delivered this amazing genre bender that may leave the uninitiated a little stunned, but should be required viewing for everyone with a soft spot for Japanese genre cinema."

Zatôichi

Zatôichi review

"Kitano's version is playful and quirky, but also pretty badass and harsh when need be. The film looks great, sports a sublime soundtrack and Kitano himself shines as the titular character."

Sukiyaki Western Django

Sukiyaki Western Django review

"This is a film for the typical Miike fan, he who appreciates the weirdness, the comical violence and the cinematic freedom you're unlikely to find anywhere else, especially in genre films."

The Animatrix

The Animatrix review

"Eight very distinct and unique shorts offer plenty of stand-out material, more than enough wow moments and plenty of variety to breeze through this anthology and leave you wanting more."

Spectral

521
Spectral review

"Spectral isn't the blow-out hit Netflix needs to convert the masses, nor is it the classy arthouse hit that it needs to attract a more hardcore film fan audience."

Ip Man 2

520
Ip Man 2 review

"Visually a little better than the first film, awesome fight sequences where Yen is allowed to shine and a fully satisfying finale where the final blow caused a big fat inner "Yeah!"."

Maborosi

Maborosi review

"The stylish cinematography, the moody score, and the devastating central performance all help to flesh out and strengthen a captivating drama about processing loss."

Kamome Diner

Kamome Diner review

"It's a truly pleasant experience from start to finish, but the lack of dramatic events is sure to leave some scratching their heads."

Dead or Alive 2: Birds

517
Dead or Alive 2: Birds review

"Dead or Alive 2: Birds is an important step in Miike's progression as a director. It's a well-rounded film, one that works as a drama as well as a crime flick."

Dancing Mary

Dancing Mary review

"Dancing Mary is a beautifully crafted, constantly surprising and joyous little film that entertains and delights, while also offering something extra to chew on for those who care."

PTU

PTU review

"PTU is first class film making. Lam en Yam are good actors and know how to play their parts. The soundtrack is solid and the film is visually impressive."

Spriggan

514
Spriggan review

"Spriggan is a pretty fun and over the top anime feature, but only for those who can handle the silliness."

High & Low: The Worst

513
High & Low: The Worst review

"High & Low: The Worst has everything I want from this type of film. Cool gangs, dystopian settings, huge brawls and lots of posing. And for every checkbox, it's best in class."

A Town Called Panic

512
A Town Called Panic review

"If you have a soft spot for claymation or you're just looking for a zany comedy, A Town Called Panic will not disappoint."

Outrage: Beyond

511
Outrage: Beyond review

"Outrage: Beyond falls just a little short of its predecessor. Because of the fact that it feels like the middle section of a full-blown trilogy the ending isn't as convincing as it could've been."

Rise of the Legend

510
Rise of the Legend review

"Hopefully Rise of the Legend is only the first in a series of new Wong Fei-hung films, as the end left me begging for more."

Jam Films S

509
Jam Films S review

"Japan's animation anthologies tend to bring together the best in the genre while their live-action counterparts are more concerned with finding new talent."

Fist & Faith

508
Fist & Faith review

"The way he brings everything together though is quite unique, not in the least for a Chinese film maker. The result is a thorougly entertaining film that amuses, dazzles and delights."

Mr. Six

507
Mr. Six review

"The film looks beautiful, the acting is superb and while thematically a little easy the execution and blend of genres makes sure it never becomes too dull or feels too familiar."

Here, Then

506
Here, Then review

"The amazing camera work, the strong performances and the moody use of soundscapes make for a dreamy film, even when the subject matter isn't all that rosy."

Vengeance

505
Vengeance review

"A very solid film in all departments, allowing you to sink back into your couch and let the film drift over you like a warm, dark blanket."

Hidden Man

504
Hidden Man review

"Hidden Man is an insanely entertaining, clever, tongue in cheek revenge flick that features a stellar cast, stylish visuals and some very solid action sequences."

Partners in Crime

503
Partners in Crime review

"Partners in Crime is quite the calling card for a director like Jung-chi Chang."

The Legend of Fong Sai-Yuk

502
The Legend of Fong Sai-Yuk review

"You have to be a fan of wire-fu antics and elongated martial arts scenes to appreciate a film like this, but if you do then you're getting one of the most spectacular and creative films in the genre."

Tony Takitani

501
Tony Takitani review

"Tony Takitani is one of the finest exercises in balancing style and content I've ever seen. Form, narrative and characters are really one here and feed off each other the entire time. "
