The Shadow Play is a film that will appeal to crime/thriller fans who don't mind a more solemn approach to the genre, or to arthouse fans who don't mind deep-rooted genre elements driving the narrative.

Nakashima's style is unique, different and overwhelming, and the best thing about it is that he doesn't hold back at all.

There's quite a lot of quirkiness to get through, but on the other side of that lies a beautifully made, emotionally touching and deeply humane drama.

Soderbergh pursues a unique and particular sense of humour that is sure to confuse and irritate people who are hoping to see a more coherent film.

It's a pleasant, easy and slightly challenging watch that leaves you wanting more.

Paris Is Us is not an easy watch. It's a film that challenges its viewers, digs deep into its main characters and chases an entire city's state of being.

A powerhouse performance by Yu Aoi, some rather stylish visuals and a highly atmospheric soundtrack make this a standout entry that highlights Shiraishi's talents.

The animation is exemplary, the art styles wildly original and the stories support the madness. There are two shorts that don't quite cut it, but the boundless quality of the others easily makes up for that.

Mirai

Mirai is lushly animated, features a competent score and above average voice acting, but most of all it has a strong and beautiful heart that keeps the drama both relevant and touching.

Eagle vs Shark

8

Waititi's first feature is a perfect introduction to his body of work. There's loads of quirky comedy, the delivery is dry and disorienting, but the characters have soul and even though the film keeps throwing problems their way, it never gets too heavy-handed.

Poster for Last Sunrise

Last Sunrise

While the film is actually quite small in scale, it never feels cramped or limited, it just feels like a more modest part of a bigger whole. Add some beautiful imagery, a great soundtrack and solid acting and you have an impressive sci-fi film.

Cashback is a charming, inventive and dreamy coming-of-age romance with several stand-out moments and memorable ideas.

Poster for Radiance

Radiance

8

Radiance is a fine, accomplished, well-rounded Japanese drama. It's not a film that reinvents the genre, it's not a breathe of fresh air, but it's a beautiful, respectful and endearing film that charms the whole way through.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

A breathe of fresh air. It's an exhilarating experience, a visual rollercoaster in the best sense of the word, but also a painful reminder of the unrealized potential that has bogged down US animation for the past 25 years.

Debie's cinematography is first class, the soundtrack is spot on, the dance routines are impressive and the final hour is Noé at his finest.

On the technical side the film is more accomplished than his earlier work, it contains more than enough quirky Miike touches and while certified strange and off-kilter, it's not all-out insane.

The confusing ambiguity, the constant mystery and the flawless presentation make The Book of Birdie into an intriguing film that stands well on its own.

Yuasa delivers a wildly original, splendidly executed and surprisingly emotional animation that defies categorization and comparison.

The film looks gorgeous, the story is smart and creative and even though there isn't that much actual action, it never gets dull.

It's a shame films like these are few and far between, on the other hand it does make Crank all the more special. Recommended for hardcore action fans, others should approach with caution.

It's an impressive film that neatly balances drama, romance and musical bits without letting any one thing overpower the rest.

Visually pleasing, it features a fine soundtrack and has a stellar lead actor that carries the film with ease.

A must-see film, especially for people who have a soft spot horror and experimental cinema, just be prepared for a little unevenness.
