Snake of June, A Review
Snake of June, A

Strange and surreal, Tsukamoto's 'blue movie' odyssey may prove too bizarre for some but provides a refreshingly progressive perspective on female empowerment shot through with a hearty dose of surrealism.

Outlaw: Gangster VIP Collection Review
Outlaw: Gangster VIP Collection

An overlooked addition to the world of '60s Japanese action movies, the Outlaw series is not quite a scrappy as its protagonist but puts up a cool and decent fight.

Mountains May Depart Review
Mountains May Depart

A staggeringly ambitious effort, Mountains May Depart is a moving examination on the effects small choices and the conspiracy of history can have on ordinary people's lives.

Cops vs Thugs

Cops or thugs, the differences are immaterial in Kinji Fukasaku's gleefully cynical gangster drama.

Destruction Babies

Unrelenting and ultimately unnecessary.

Dead or Alive Trilogy

Takashi Miike's existential trilogy showcases the director's well known talent for the surreal, but its message is a melancholy filled with the inevitability of violence and defeat.

Missing

E Oni's taught sociological thriller begins and ends as the story of a stolen child, but the path it takes is a dark one through social inequality and female suffering.

Ghost in the Shell

A solid effort (but I miss the Tachikoma!)
