His (2020) review [Nippon Connection 2021]

A touching and heartwarming romance drama that captivates the spectator not only because it’s driven by romantic feelings feel genuine, but also because the truth of love is so charmingly delivered by someone not yet fully subjected to the patriarchal societal fantasy.

Outrage Beyond (2012) review

“A tense (…) voyeuristic trip through the private spaces of the gokudōsha that unfortunately is not able to underline the futility of violence in the same palpable way as its predecessor.”
