“Hashimoto offers a more clear analysis of the problems subjects have to cope with within contemporary society than most feature-length movies do in there entire run-time”

Kushina (2018) review [OAFF 2018]

“A strong statement against suffocating parental desires, desires that do not give the child the necessary space and time to let his own desire comes to fruition.”

Short Movie Time: Jujuba (2018)

“An evocative expression of subjectivity (…) that successfully reveals how beyond non-understanding subjects do define each other through the signifier/word.” 

Hydra (2019) review [JFFH 2019]

“Kensuke Sonomura’s entertaining action-noir narrative does convince us of the fact that he, if given a bigger budget and better technical equipment, could make cinematographical products far more entertaining and far more gripping.”

“Hatayama succeeded in crafting a creative and moving exploration of the inability of a subject to escape his unresolved trauma as well as his guilt.”
