Godspeed

625
Godspeed review

"Depending on where you're coming from, Godspeed is either a superb crime flick or an ever so slightly disappointing Mong-Hong Chung film."

Fire of Conscience

624
Fire of Conscience review

"Dante Lam finally delivers a film that mixes enjoyable, adrenaline-inducing action coupled with a more stylish and classy exterior."

Baby

623
Baby review

"Ulloa and his team crafted a beautiful, dark and haunting modern fairy tale that plows its way through the narrative without a single word spoken."

Scabbard Samurai

622
Scabbard Samurai review

"Matsumoto's new film is a little gem, a film that does not impress in spades but focuses on smaller details."

Rubber

621
Rubber review

"No doubt Dupieux's film is going to reach a substantial audience based on its trailer and some good hype alone."

The Flowers of War

620
The Flowers of War review

"The Flowers Of War borders on sentimentality and poses as a very epic endeavor. It's Zhang's magnificent direction that erases any major critiques, turning the film into a proper epic spectacle."

Why Don't You Just Die!

619
Why Don't You Just Die! review

"The colorful and vibrant cinematography, the hilarious soundtrack and the spot-on performances all feed the darkly comedic and grotesque atmosphere that adds flavor to a pretty basic crime story."

Winds of September

618
Winds of September review

"A very solid film with strong acting all around, some very strong shots and camera work and a pretty touching story about a group of kids growing up."

Nasu: Summer in Andalusia

617
Nasu: Summer in Andalusia review

"Nasu is a great seasonal film. Its summer vibe is tangible, it coincides with the Vuelta and it gives one of the best depictions of cycling ever caught on (fictional) film, let alone animation."

Cashback

616
Cashback review

"Cashback is a charming, inventive and dreamy coming-of-age romance with several stand-out moments and memorable ideas."

Strobe Edge

615
Strobe Edge review

"In many ways, Strobe Edge is a typical manga adaptation as much as it is a typical romance. But Hiroki builds upon that to make a sweet, cute and genuine little love story."

The Brink

614
The Brink review

"Li delivers a fun, gritty and stylish crime flick with some very impressive action scenes and a stand-out performance by Shawn Yue."

Silence and Sunset

613
Silence and Sunset review

"The beautiful cinematography, the stylish score and the raw performances make for a powerful and entrancing experience, establishing Umemura as a potential future stronghold of Japanese arthouse."

The Burning Buddha Man

612
The Burning Buddha Man review

"Ujicha's passion is beyond question. The unique animation style, the grotesque art style, the off the wall plot and the immense scale of Ujicha's undertaking make this an experience like no other."

Livid

611
Livid review

"Livid is a superb horror flick that easily surpasses most of its peers. Watch it with an open mind and you'll see there is plenty to love and enjoy here."

Involution

610
Involution review

"Involution is a superbly styled, impeccably scored, intriguing and challenging sci-fi that easily outdoes the majority of its peers with just a fraction of their budget."

My Darling of the Mountains

609
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."

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring

608
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring review

"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

607
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

606
Bodyguards and Assassins review

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

Weathering with You

605
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

604
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

603
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

602
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."

Good Take!

601
Good Take! review

"If you want to explore Hong Kong's upcoming talent and you don't mind shifting gears from time to time, then this one comes well recommended."
