• Clean My Name, Mr. Coroner!

    Mar 1, 2015

    There is no doubt that this quirky and engrossing production has its faults; not all of the loose ends are successfully tied up and those that are seem to work out a little too neatly.

  • Coweb

    Mar 3, 2015

    While Jiang Lu-Xia is definitely a talent for the future the film itself barely seems to register on the excitement scale.

  • Dummy Mommy, Without A Baby

    Mar 9, 2015

    The film is reliant on the gentle charm of its principle cast and the genuine warmth of the relationships therein.

  • Funeral March

    Mar 15, 2015

    By avoiding Hollywood histrionics or schmaltz, a well-worn plot again manages to seem fresh and deeply moving.

  • Glass Tears

    Mar 17, 2015

    While ‘Glass Tears’ is a solid debut for Carol Lai, it has a few signs of directorial immaturity within it.

  • The Attractive One

    Feb 19, 2015

    When the closing credits rolled, I opined that I had lost a full ninety minutes that would’ve been better used watching one of these sub-genres more accomplished works.

  • The Lion Roars

    Apr 12, 2015

    ‘The Lion Roars’ is slickly produced, well performed by its beloved leading couple and not without its moments of amusement.

  • Three Of A Kind

    Jun 11, 2015

    ‘Three Of A Kind’ is harmless enough as a stand-alone feature despite its serious flaws. It isn’t necessarily painful to watch, but any film that has such a lack of creativity is hardly going to inspire.

  • United We Stand, And Swim

    Jun 19, 2015

    The enjoyment that is had from viewing this modest, yet mostly rewarding production is that it is a character piece that avoids action or histrionics.
