First Love (2019) Review

“Takashi Miike’s latest beautifully underlines that the only kind of violence worthy of humanity is a violence born out of love.”

Death By Hanging (1968) Review

“A true classic of political driven cinema that has, maybe contrary to one’s expectations, remained as relevant as it was in the past.”

Like A Dragon (2007) review

“A clear case of a film translation gone wrong. People are, in fact, far better off playing the game.”

Dawn of the Felines (2016) review

“(The narrative) fully realizes what Roman Porno stands for, offering an erotically enticing investigation of inter-subjectivity and the role of sexuality within one’s subjectivity.”
