Lesson In Murder (2022) review

In Shiraishi’s talented hands the narrative transforms into a visual elegant and compelling examination of the desire that drives us all.  

A Madder Red (2021) review [Nippon Connection 2022]

Machiko Ono and Yuki Katayama breathe extra-ordinary life and realism into the pain, the hopes, the white lies, the tears, the smiles, and the anger of contemporary female subjects subjected to a phallically-structured societal system. Highly recommended.
