The Frame

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

"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 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

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."

"I found La Meute to be a very pleasant surprise, but I encountered plenty of disappointed reactions elsewhere."

Crows Zero

Crows Zero review

"The film never slacks and even gives the viewer a nice look into the whole gang structure in between the fights, making it a little more than just another butt-kicking action flick. "

Two Pigeons

Two Pigeons review

"Two Pigeons is a small delight. It's not a big, swooping movie, but it offers plenty of nasty smiles, some genuine wonder and a very balanced ending."

Poser

Poser review

"There is something wildly intriguing about young people carving out their own way through life, for that reason alone a film like Poser is worth championing."

Outcast

0692
Outcast review

"With Outcast he delivers a dark, hellish and barren fantasy grounded in obscure myths and set in a depressively dirty neighborhood."

Adrift in Tokyo

Cub review

"With his first feature, Govaerts delivers a rock solid genre film. It's tense and moody, never too gory, beautifully shot, aptly scored and generally well-directed."

"I was happily surprised after watching Life Can Be So Wonderful. It's an upbeat, albeit slow and meandering, film that succeeds effortlessly in its goals."

Strobe Edge

0699
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."

"After only two films Chen is well on his way to become a personal favorite. He has a keen eye and is quite versatile."
