"In a sense Beautiful Crazy still carries all the typical marks of the older Taiwanese dramas, but rearranged and remixed in such a way that it feels like a breath of fresh air."
"Once it picks up steam it never falls back, propelling itself to an inevitable climax that left me perplexed and impressed. "
"That said, it didn't make the film any less enjoyable, on the contrary even. Tokyo Tribe is a killer ride from beginning to end. It's brutal, outrageous, funny, weird and it has a terrific drive."
"You may think 64 minutes is rather short, but it's perfect for a film like this."
"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"
"If you're a fan of Sono's work, I feel quite confident in recommending The Whispering Star."
"If you like cultural melting pots, non-narrative cinema, punk cinema or just something off-kilter and youthful, then give Ruined Heart a try."
"If the film had stopped 20 minutes earlier I would've given it a full score, now I feel Beyond The Black Rainbow fails to fulfill its true potential."
"Yakuza Apocalypse is the kind of Miike I adore. The film looks good, sounds good, is stacked with crazy ideas and even weirder characters and dares to cross the line of common sense more than once."
"Mong-Hong Chung clearly outgrew his image of upcoming talent. His direction is so purposeful and to the point that it almost feels as if he's a veteran already."

"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."
"Hardcore Henry is a film with no noticeable compromises. I say noticeable, because with only 2 million dollars to spend there must have been quite a few limitations for Naishuller and his crew."
"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."
"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."
