Han Gong-ju Review
Han Gong-ju

Another assured debut from a first-time Korean director, Han Gong-ju is a hard-hitting and thought-provoking film that handles extraordinarily complex issues with remarkable assurance.

Exit Review

An interestingly composed character study, with an accomplished performance from leading actress Chen Shiang-Chyi.

Poetry Review

Beautiful, moving and yes, poetic; Lee Chang-dong’s Poetry is a film that deserves much wider recognition than it’s currently getting.

Black Society Trilogy

A trio of early entries from the ever expanding Miike canon, the Black Society Trilogy is an apt reminder of the director's skill.

Toshiaki Toyoda: The Early Years

A long overdue opportunity to revisit Toyoda's early career, this three disc set includes some of the best examples of indie cinema from the last 20 years.

Lowlife Love

A long way away from 'A Star Is Born', this is a guide to making movies graduated from the School Of Hard Knocks.

Last Princess, The

A largely fictionalised historical biopic, The Last Princess aligns the tragic tale of its titular heroine with that of its nation.

Kai (Theatrical screening)

An interesting, if fairly dull, take on a classic fairy tale, Kai is let down by poor production values and an unbalanced narrative but may prove entertaining to younger audiences.
