Hello everyone!

I hope you are all well.

This is part one of my weekend trailer post.

This week, I’ve posted reviews for the Lisa Takeba films Wandering Alien Detective Robin and The Horse Thieves. Roads of Time. I’ve split this trailer post into two, the first today and the second tomorrow to allow space for all of the films released. These are just Japanese ones but the Chinese film The Crossing gets a Japanese release.

What have I watched this week? The Departed, Umberto D, V/H/S 2, The House of Exorcism, Door III, The Revenge I: A Visit from Fate, To the Ends of the Earth.

What is released this weekend? A lot of films I have already written about for festivals this year!
