Release Year: 2017
A LonerAug 18, 2017
‘A Loner’ is therefore a solid, thoughtful meditation on a traditionally Western problem that is now creeping into the affluent East, but should have been more than its good intentions.
Blade Of The ImmortalSep 10, 2021
Billed as Takashi Miike’s 100th film at the time of release, ‘Blade of the Immortal’ sees the enfant terrible deliver one of his best films of recent: both violently excessive and beautifully crafted.
Bleeding SteelApr 20, 2018
‘Bleeding Steel’ starts with promise and then refuses to flesh out any of the plot details, leaving us bewildered shortly after our interest had piqued.

There aren’t any surprises in ‘Duckweed’, but for a well made feel-good film it’s about as good as we’ll see this year.
Edge Of InnocenceSep 20, 2017

Whether this is the beginning of the Esports film remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure – there’s definitely plenty of room for improvement.
Free And EasyAug 14, 2017
‘Free & Easy’ is a moderately amusing one minute sketch stretching to feature length and you can feel every one of its ninety minutes pass as if they’re being pulled from your own flesh.
Ghost In The ShellApr 14, 2017
Those who give it a chance will be rewarded with a well made, at times thought provoking and overall entertaining version of a Japanese classic.
JailbreakJun 29, 2018
