DeparturesMar 7, 2015
Tackling a taboo subject with maturity and outstanding sensitivity, it should be of no great surprise to see ‘Departures’ striking a chord with audiences around the globe.
For Love’s SakeMar 14, 2015
‘For Love’s Sake’ has sporadic moments of brilliance but falls short of being the fast, fun and feisty musical action teen romance it could have been.
My S.O. Has Got DepressionMay 3, 2015
Blessed with the presence of Aoi Miyazaki – possibly the cutest actress in the universe – the story of two ordinary people dealing with life-changing illness is uplifting without being glib.
Shield Of StrawMay 24, 2015
For a director known for lurid excess, ‘Shield of Straw’ is a subtly haunting thriller with an ending that asks questions of everything that went before it.
Suicide ClubJun 3, 2015
To say ‘Suicide Club’ is a trip, is an understatement. It’s been a while since I‘ve watched a film that has equally repulsed and mesmerized me.
VillainJun 22, 2015
‘Villain’ is not a whodunnit – the identity of the killer is uncovered early on in the film. It is, however, a whydidtheydoit (that’s not going to catch on is it) and quite an excellent one too.
