The Kiyosu Conference review

"The Kiyosu Conference is good, solid, old-fashioned fun. Mitani has a great cast to his disposal and goes with colorful visuals and an upbeat soundtrack."

Paprika

574
Paprika review

"That said, Paprika is still an amazing film with plenty of memorable moments and a superb finale. If I sound a little negative that's only because his first two films are hard to surpass."

New Type: Just For Your Love

573
New Type: Just For Your Love review

"Hiroki made a pretty brave move here, incorporating new elements from other genres into his movies without changing anything of his trademark style."

Left Bank

572
Left Bank review

"The atmosphere is pleasantly bleak, dark and loaded, there's a little audiovisual bravoure, the actors are on point and the plot keeps you guessing."

Sightseers

571
Sightseers review

"Wheatley is a blessing for UK cinema."

Call Boy

570
Call Boy review

"Call Boy is a very direct, somewhat impenetrable yet beautiful and ultimately touching film that relies on sublime styling and great performances to craft a dark and alluring universe."

Crows Zero II

569
Crows Zero II review

"Crows Zero II will probably appeal to the people who liked the first film and can bear a second, almost identical, serving."

Café Lumière

568
Café Lumière review

"Café Lumière held up pretty well, which isn't even that surprising knowing its appeal lies in the mundane."

But Always

567
But Always review

"A self-written, self-directed romance that feels quite familiar and comfortable, but has one major selling point. From start to finish, the film looks drop-dead gorgeous."

Cadaver

566
Cadaver review

"Herdal delivers a very moody and stylistically impeccable mix of mystery and horror, an audiovisual experience that washed over me and stayed with me until the very end."

Mr. Long

565
Mr. Long review

"Mr. Long is visually pleasing, it features a fine soundtrack and has a stellar lead actor that carries the film with ease."

Man on Fire

564
Man on Fire review

"If you're looking for a traditional action flick or you're one of those people who loves to complain about the MTV aethetic of modern cinema, leave this film alone."

Make Up

563
Make Up review

"The ending could've been better and lacks impact though. While not bad or disappointing, it somehow lacks the strength to bring the separate parts of the film to an appropriate conclusion."

White Snake 2: Green Snake

562
White Snake 2: Green Snake review

"The imaginative designs, the cinematic presentation and the dedication to deliver original lore make this a fantastical adventure that kept me gasping for air until the very end."

Schizopolis

561
Schizopolis review

"If you're looking for something totally different, strangely off-beat and pleasantly absurd, dressed in up utter stylistic wackiness, then Schizopolis definitely has you covered."

Fate

560
Fate review

"Wai Man Yip succeeds in creating something that feels very fresh and unique, looks great and leaves something mysterious behind."

Willy's Wonderland

559
Willy's Wonderland review

"A film you need to watch if you appreciate the weird, the goofy and the incredulous. It's a film that fully commits to its silly premise and is willing to take it to its extreme."

Eagle vs. Shark

558
Eagle vs. Shark review

"There's loads of quirky comedy, the delivery is dry and disorienting, but the characters have soul and even though the film keeps throwing problems their way, it never gets too heavy-handed."

Exte: Hair Extensions

557
Exte: Hair Extensions review

"Exte: Hair Extensions might feel like his most commercial film to date, but that is mostly a disguise. It's a fun, crazy and surprisingly eerie film."

Black Hawk Down

556
Black Hawk Down review

"Black Hawk Down is dense, chaotic and exhausting, fueled by strong camera work, slick editing and perfect pacing."

Rage

555
Rage review

"The superb cast and impeccable styling ease you into the film while Lee's bold and contrasting touches keep you engaged throughout."

Saint Young Men

554
Saint Young Men review

"It houses a pretty chill, good-natured and dry kind of comedy that felt refreshing and to the point."

Shaolin Soccer

553
Shaolin Soccer review

"It's a good thing Shoalin Soccer is this much fun, because beyond its successful comedy aspect it's clear the film is somewhat lacking."

Sick Nurses

552
Sick Nurses review

"Exuberant colors, a rather stylish ghost and bucket loads of devious fun make this worth your while, unless you desperately demand thrills and scares."

Lost Indulgence

551
Lost Indulgence review

"Some lovely visuals, a strong score and some neat little touches to lighten up the atmosphere from time to time and what you have is quality drama"
