Code 46 review

"Code 46 serves a vivid vision of the future, a world that looks and feels plausible, even when reality should've caught up with it by now. A sign of clever, relevant sci-fi if there ever was one."

My Father, the Bride

0852
My Father, the Bride review

"A bright and endearing Japanese comedy, mixing island appeal with dry, quirky comedy and queer themes, but doing it in such a way that it feels fresh and exciting."

Dragon Hunters

Dragon Hunters review

"The film is visually pleasing (though not technically perfect), packs an enjoyable sense of humor, great creature and world design and doesn't give you the chance to become bored."

Gelatin Silver, Love

Gelatin Silver, Love review

"Kurigami makes a pretty good impression with his first film."

Nina

0855
Nina review

"The gritty cinematography and the eerie soundtrack are genre staples, but the Brazilian setting, the spirited performances, and the puzzling finale add that little bit of extra spice."

Volcano High

0856
Volcano High review

"The styling is zany and explicit, while the story is little more than an excuse for some great action scenes. And that's exactly what a film like this should be about."

Turn Left Turn Right

0857
Turn Left Turn Right review

"Turn Left, Turn Right is a simple, light-hearted drama, but conceptually quite strong and pure. The film demands that you go along with its concept and leave it at that."

The World's End

0858
The World's End review

"The World's End if by far my favorite entry in the trilogy (don't worry if you haven't seen the other two first by the way, they are only related by crew and a few running gags)."

Zombieland

0859
Zombieland review

"If you're up for an entertaining, funny and fast zombie flick than Zombieland should be first pick. Even though it's not wildly original it hits all the right notes."

Inland Empire

0860
Inland Empire review

"Inland Empire is still a pretty interesting film and if you've enjoyed Lynch's older films it won't be too much of a disappointment. But expect crappy video quality and less than preferable visuals."

[Rec] 2 review

"If you didn't like the first film, I can't see how you'll like this one. Stylistically the films are very much alike, though the directors made better use of the style this time around."

Angel

0862
Angel review

"A mysterious, entrancing film that draws a lot of strength from its audiovisual qualities, but ultimately works because of the complex and captivating relationship between the two leads."

Suzhou River

0863
Suzhou River review

"The moody and vibrant city shots, the stand-out performance of Xun Zhou and the mysterious romance all add up to a slightly grittier film set in the outskirts of a booming Shanghai."

Sightseers

Sightseers review

"Wheatley is a blessing for UK cinema."

Murmur of the Hearts

0865
Murmur of the Hearts review

"After its big yet sudden peak in 2011, Taiwanese cinema seems to have subsided again."

Whisper of the Heart

0866
Whisper of the Heart review

"Kondo's first film is a perfect match for the Ghibli brand."

Like Father, Like Son

0867
Like Father, Like Son review

"The characters are given ample room to thrive, the underlying drama is solid and the film features a stellar concept that intrigues even beyond the scope of its running time."

Guilty of Romance

0868
Guilty of Romance review

"Guilty of Romance may not be Sono's brightest, most ambitious or most accomplished work, but it's a more than solid addition to Sono's already strong oeuvre."

Outrage: Coda

0869
Outrage: Coda review

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

Once Upon a Time in China II

Once Upon a Time in China II review

"A vibrant action spectacle, sporting some of the most impressive fights in the genre, colorful background drama and perfect pacing that won't leave you a chance to get bored."

Modest Heroes

0871
Modest Heroes review

"Quality across the board with touches of originality sprinkled left and right, in order to keep things interesting. It's a pleasant, easy and slightly challenging watch that leaves you wanting more."

Her Granddaughter

0872
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."

Platonic Sex

0873
Platonic Sex review

"This isn't a great film by a great director. It didn't kickstart Matsuura's career, nor did it kickstart Kagami's."

The Midnight Meat Train

0874
The Midnight Meat Train review

"The kills are gory, Jones is an amazing killer and Kitamura's direction is the right kind of flashy, which makes for a brutal, tense and very entertaining horror flick."

April Story

0875
April Story review

"The film quickly won me over the second time around, thanks to the polished cinematography, a strong lead performance, a pleasant score, and some poignant moments."
