My Darling of the Mountains review

"Well acted, beautifully shot and neatly scored, this film is for those who enjoy the more poetic side of Katsuhito Ishii, but can handle this style in a light and undemanding context."

"The pleasant cinematography and extraordinary setting, the lovely score and the relatable themes make this one of Kim's most accessible films, perfect if you need an entry into his oeuvre."

Kick-ass review

"Even if you don't like superheroes, even if you don't like the nerdy overtones, hell, even if you don't give a damn about the whole setup, Kick-Ass is still a pretty cool film."

Bodyguards and Assassins

Bodyguards and Assassins review

"Very much recommended if you've been enjoying the epic productions of the previous decade."

Weathering with You

596
Weathering with You review

"The animation is absolutely stunning, the balance between fantasy and romance is perfect and the ending is quite challenging, which makes it, at least in my book, a better film than Your Name."

Vibrator

595
Vibrator review

"It's not an audiovisual wonder, and it may skip over some expectations of the road movie genre, but the characters are appealing and layered, while the performances are beyond stellar."

All My Friends Hate Me review

"Both the writing and the direction stand out, combined with the superb performances, the perfectly paced build-up and the fitting finale, it makes for an excellent black comedy."

Filth

Filth review

"The question remains if Baird could manage on his own, without the help of Welsh's source material, but at least for now that doesn't really matter."

"With Wrong Dupieux delivers a refreshing slice of absurd comedy that few other directors out there are able to match."

Ab-normal Beauty

590
Ab-normal Beauty review

"Oxide Pang's signature style is on full display here, with superb visuals, an atmospheric score and some dark and gauntly material that forms the basis for a unique and haunting horror film."

A Taste of Hunger

589
A Taste of Hunger review

"The lush cinematography and outstanding soundtrack set the stage for a bristling, touching relationship drama, the superb performances seal the deal."

Antiviral

588
Antiviral review

"Antiviral is unsettling and disturbing, an uneasy take on obsession and celebrity culture that mixes moments of surreal body horror with an extremely stylish delivery."

Ace Attorney

587

"Ace Attorney is a Miike blockbuster. The weirdness is kept to a minimum, but the entertainment value is high and the film definitely has its moments of brilliance."

The Sun Also Rises

Exodus

585
Exodus review

"You should like the arthouse aesthetics and you're required to pick up on the humor, if not this film is probably a serious drag. But if you do, it will be a worthwhile experience, guaranteed."

Ink

584
Ink review

"Ink shows enormous potential, executed well beyond what anyone could expect considering the limitations. A little gem that will one day find its audience and is destined to become a cult hit"

Destruction Babies

583
Destruction Babies review

"Destruction Babies is a great film. It walks a fine line between accomplished cinema and maverick nihilism and succeeds with deceptive ease."

Eternal Moment

582

Paradox

580
Paradox review

"I'm a big fan of the first SPL, the second one was a tiny letdown. Luckily Yip returned to elevate the series back to its original level."

The Moss

579
The Moss review

"The Moss is not a wildly original film, but executed so well that it impresses from the very first seconds right until the final credit fades from the screen."

The Kiyosu Conference

578
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

577
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 review

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