Lover's Discourse review

"Visually Lover's Discourse is a stunning film, the soundtrack is solid but not too spectacular and the acting is all-round impressive."

Shoot 'em Up

Shoot 'em Up review

"It might not take itself too seriously, but it does value it's entertainment value, which is what makes films like these a treat to watch."

Alice in Wonderland

0653
Alice in Wonderland review

"It's Burton's style that thrives the film to greater heights. One of the best Burton films I've seen so far, I hope he continues on this path"

The Wandering Moon

0654
The Wandering Moon review

"The Wandering Moon may sound reprehensible and wrong on paper, but the delicate styling, Lee's nuanced direction, and some stellar performances make all the difference."

Weathering with You

0655
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."

Rinco's Restaurant

0656
Rinco's Restaurant review

"It's hard to say which of Tominaga's films is better. Rinco's Restaurant is definitely more accomplished, illustrating Tominaga's growth as a director."

The Bastard and the Beautiful World

0657
The Bastard and the Beautiful World review

"The Bastard and the Beautiful World has everything I expect from a good anthology film. It is eclectic, creative, no weak links and each short comes with its own fun surprises."

Left Bank

0658
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."

The Message

0659
The Message review

"The Message is visually stunning, smart, atmospheric and even a little tense near the end."

Schizopolis

0660
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."

Flavors of Youth

0661
Flavors of Youth review

"A film that's rich in atmosphere, beautifully animated and with just the right amount of depth, a film that soothes and comforts but is more than simple sentimental fluff."

Turtles Are Surprisingly Fast Swimmers

0662
Turtles Are Surprisingly Fast Swimmers review

"It's a fun, quirky and silly film that slowly grows on you and leaves you behind with a warm smile."

Ip Man

0663
Ip Man review

"Ip Man turned out to be an extremely solid entry in the ever growing list of Yip and Yen collaborations. If you liked Fearless, you will probably like this one too."

Your Friends

0664
Your Friends review

"It's not a wildly original film but it introduces enough elements to differentiate itself from other Japanese dramas while keeping the usual traits firmly in place."

Tears of the Black Tiger

0665
Tears of the Black Tiger review

"It's a mad blend of western and soap drama, wrapped in Thai goodness, rendered in the craziest color combos imaginable and sporting one of the cheesiest soundtracks I've ever heard."

Fudoh: The New Generation

0666
Fudoh: The New Generation review

"Focusing solely on technical qualities, Fudoh is ripping apart at the seams, but that would mean ignoring all the creativity, joy and sheer disregard for proper taste on display here."

#Manhole

0667
#Manhole review

"There's a dark comedy streak that keeps the film on the right track, the polished presentation and the captivating central performance do the rest."

Under the Light

0668
Under the Light review

"Under the Light is pure visual bliss, a film that bathes in color and light and leaves no frame untouched to explore the limits of how far you can push the cinematography."

A Very Long Engagement

0669
A Very Long Engagement review

"A very stylish, lovingly crafted romance that carries Jeunet's signature, offers quality in every department and should appeal to a broad audience without feeling too generic or dumbed-down."

House 475

0670
House 475 review

"This may just be Iseya's second film, but it feels a lot like the work of a confident, accomplished director."

The Frame

0671
The Frame review

"There aren't many directors who can pull of urban fantasy like Winans can, even when he only has a rather limited budget to work with."

While the Women Are Sleeping

0672
While the Women Are Sleeping review

"While the Women Are Sleeping is a fine mystery/thriller. The film looks great, sports a good soundtrack, has a perfect cast and handles both its mystery and its audience with the proper respect."

A Town Called Panic

0673
A Town Called Panic review

"If you have a soft spot for claymation or you're just looking for a zany comedy, A Town Called Panic will not disappoint."

2LDK

0674
2LDK review

"With two spirited actresses, a fun and progressively more over-the-top script, nifty dark comedy and a very economic runtime, 2LDK is a film that made me grin from start to finish."

Wrong

0675
Wrong review

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