A great and visually pleasing narrative about the socially embedded nature of the process of coming-into-being-as-subject.
Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris is, without a doubt, the best film of the Heisei Gamera trilogy.
A great sequel that delivers everything what Kajju fans desire, but in a less thrilling manner than the first reboot film did.
A successful reboot that succeeds in honouring Gamera’s classic past, while also evolving this iconic Kaiju in a meaningful way.
“An artfully composed erotic narrative that plays with the well-known psychoanalytic fact that the relational past of subjects impacts the possibility and appearance of sexual attraction between a man and a woman.”
“A charming exploration about the way in which the other allows a drifting subject to moor his desire and find a direction for his subjectivity within the Other.”
“Nakahama succeeds in delivering his message concerning the human tendency to misrecognize the traumatic pain of others in a fresh and touching manner.”
“Ishii’s latest succeeds in showing, in a powerful and touching manner, the possibility of intercultural friendship and romance.”
“A raw and powerful drama narrative that confronts the spectator with the inherent difficulty of accepting the loss of a loved one.”
“A great short narrative that beautifully highlights the impact of the state of emergency on the subjective and social state of speaking beings.”
Imaizumi’s narrative littered with a multitude of beautifully nuanced moments of natural relation poetry.
“It is, in other words, the moral plight/responsibility of psychoanalysis to urge subjects to think themselves from the sexual lack that marks their being and confront them with the sexual non-relation; ‘I’ll n’y a pas de rapport sexual.”
“A finely composed narrative that succeeds in revealing that various themes of Ozu’s narrative have not yet lost their relevance for the contemporary spectator.”
A great narrative that does not only touches upon the beauty of one’s first love (…), but also on the selfishness that drives the wishes of human subjects.
A very pleasant narrative that vividly underlines the importance of social bonds for the integration of a subject within the social field as well as the fundamental role the O/other plays in the process of becoming a desiring subject.
