"Spriggan is a pretty fun and over the top anime feature, but only for those who can handle the silliness."
"It's a fun, quirky and silly film that slowly grows on you and leaves you behind with a warm smile."
"Raw is a great film for a director just starting out in the business."
"Like most anime anthologies, Robot Carnival is a film that seeks out the boundaries of anime. The animation is exemplary, the art styles wildly original and the stories support the madness."
"No doubt Dupieux's film is going to reach a substantial audience based on its trailer and some good hype alone."
"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."

"Switchblade Romance is a very basic horror film, but executed to perfection. The presentation is flawless, the killer is grotesque and the finale is brutal."
"While it's probably best Takeuchi stops the series here, this second film was anything but redundant."
"Rogen deserves a lot of praise for this film. It may drag a little in the middle, but whenever the film seems to be hitting a dead end another neat thing happens that propels the film forward."
"Oscar or no Oscar, The Shape of Water is a pretty magnificent film."
"Strong on every level, juicy and playful, it's a neat little diamond in the rough. Recommended for adventurous film fans."
