Run for Love

Run for Love review

"There are no weak shorts, one exceptional piece and enough variation to breeze through its 140 minutes running time."

The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael

849
The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael review

"Slightly elevated cinematography, a more contemporary soundtrack, an unflinching camera and very strong performances from the central cast turn this social drama into a rare success for me."

Yellow Elephant

848
Yellow Elephant review

"Thanks to its slightly magical touches and its strong shifts between feel-good and drama, Yellow Elephant rises above the majority of other Japanese dramas out there."

The Last Hero in China

847
The Last Hero in China review

"The action choreography is superb, Li is at the top of his game, the comedy is bonkers and there are at least a few scenes that will linger well beyond the credits."

The Beckoning

The Beckoning review

"That said, there is still plenty to enjoy. The film is blessed with a creepy atmosphere, luscious visuals and some pretty interesting twists."

Seven 2 One

845
Seven 2 One review

"Above all Seven 2 One is true visual feast. Danny Pang, while showcasing a somewhat different style from his brother, proves he has his own set of skills to perfect in his solo projects."

Swordsmen

844
Swordsmen review

"Chan's attempt is definitely a good start, sporting high production values, a classy and stylish atmosphere and a strong mix of varied genre elements."

Chernobyl Diaries

843
Chernobyl Diaries review

"Parker does everything to make sure that all the things are there for a good night of tense and thrilling horror fun, whether it will actually work depends on how you like your horror films served."

Grotesque

842
Grotesque review

"Grotesque is for all those people who need a lesson in what torture porn flicks really are."

Rocknrolla

841
Rocknrolla review

"For any Ritchie fan out there, RocknRolla is surely a film worth watching, as long as you don't expect another refreshing masterpiece."

Songs from the Second Floor

840
Songs from the Second Floor review

"If you care for absurdist tableaus, bleak, dry, and dark comedy, unpleasant characters, and a relentless unwillingness to push forward a clear narrative, this film will be right up your alley."

Sleepwalker

839
Sleepwalker review

"Like I said before, Sleepwalker is a pretty simple film. Everything is neatly revealed and tied up at the end, the plot doesn't contain any real big twists and runs smoothly from start to finish."

Running Scared

838
Running Scared review

"A high-energy, tense and brash action/crime flick that has a few neat surprises up its sleeve, but is mostly geared at offering the best genre experience possible."

Her Granddaughter

837
Her Granddaughter review

"Her Granddaughter is a beautiful, serene and heart-warming little drama with no false notes, no overt sentimentality and no obvious tear-jerking."

Layer Cake

836
Layer Cake review

"It looks stylish, boasts a fun soundtrack and delivers a quirky range of gangsters, ticking all the boxes that makes this niche great. A fine blend of crime and comedy, nothing more, nothing less."

The Trip

835
The Trip review

"The styling is on point, the actors know what they're doing, and the film gets progressively crazier and dafter. This is everything I want from a good black comedy."

The Assassins

834
The Assassins review

"The film looks beautiful, Chow Yun-Fat is superb and the strategic implications of the story are intriguing."

25th Hour

833
25th Hour review

"When I first watched 25th Hour the film left a bigger impression on me. Maybe it's because I hadn't seen that many films back then, maybe it's because time has blunted some of its initial impact."

Chocolate

832
Chocolate review

"The drama is flimsy, the music too melodramatic. Visually, it's a good watch, but the prime attraction are the battles, which don't disappoint at all."

Firestorm

831
Firestorm review

"Yuen clearly saved the best for last here and it paid off. The film has no apparent lows, but it has one sprawling high at the very end which left me quite impressed."

Outrage: Coda

830
Outrage: Coda review

"Coda serves a worthy ending to the trilogy, sporting an excellent cast, stark and beautiful cinematography and a stunning score."

Nightmare Detective

829
Nightmare Detective review

"It's still a great film though. Even a slightly watered down Tsukamoto film is way better than most of the J-Horror films released in the past 15 years."

Shinjuku Swan II

828
Shinjuku Swan II review

"Shinjuku Swan II is a quality production from start to finish, propelled forward by Asano's strong performance and handled capably by Sono."

Nasu: A Migratory Bird with Suitcase

827
Nasu: A Migratory Bird with Suitcase review

"An interest in the cycling sport comes in handy. You'll notice many familiar situations and even recognize some funny little parallels with the real world."

Little Fish, Strange Pond

826
Little Fish, Strange Pond review

"This American no-concessions comedy deserves a little more praise than it's been getting, so don't miss it when you get the chance."
