• Infernal Affairs

    Mar 31, 2015

    The film has one of the best stories I’ve seen in quite a while and the cast and crew all produce some of their finest work to date.

  • Just One Look

    Apr 2, 2015

    Amusing (though never crude) and nostalgic (though never overly sentimental), Riley Yip’s gentle ‘coming-of-age’ comedy/drama earns a major recommendation.

  • Kamome Diner

    Oct 25, 2016

    A mixture of beautifully written, slightly quirky and completely endearing characters, this is the kind of ensemble comedy drama that Asian cinema does so well.

  • Kiki’s Delivery Service

    Apr 3, 2015

    Another superbly constructed piece of cinema that really captures the imagination and warms the heart.

  • Mad World

    May 25, 2018

    It tackles a complex subject with real skill and, while not pretending to be the definitive film on the matter – as if any one film could claim to be – it is a work of rare brilliance.

  • Marathon

    Apr 20, 2015

    There is so much acclaim to heap on ‘Marathon’ that it is difficult to pin-point just one stand out feature.

  • McDull: The Pork of Music

    May 14, 2015

    ‘Pork Of Music’ is probably the best of the series, full of beautiful moments, delicate satire and heart-warming artwork.

  • Minari

    Apr 1, 2021

    ‘Minari’ is beautifully shot – Terence Malik would be proud – and directed with such assuredness that you quickly realise that you are watching something special.

  • New Tales Of The Flying Fox

    May 4, 2015

    This is a rollicking action-adventure that is packed with top kung fu entertainment but because of a lack of depth misses out on a higher grade.

  • New World

    Jan 10, 2018

    Slick, confident and complex, much like its main characters, ‘New World’ un-spools a gripping tale of loyalty and the quest for power.

  • Nobody To Watch Over Me

    May 4, 2015

    ‘Nobody To Watch Over Me’ packs quality into every area, from the probing direction to a superb cast without a weak link among them.

  • Parasite

    Jul 12, 2019

    It’s easy to see why ‘Parasite’ won the Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Bong Joon-ho’s latest is no mere pretender to greatness; it’s the genuine article.
