I hope you are well.

This is the first of a two-part trailer post. I’m a bit slow at doing things but steadily knocking down targets. I finished my review of Double Layered Town / Making a Song to Replace Our Positions and that was posted on V-Cinema. As for this blog, I posted about the line-up of the 2021 edition of the Kanazawa Film Fest and I posted my review of To Sleep so as to Dream.

This is the first of a two-part trailer post.

My coverage of Japan Cuts continued this week when I posted reviews of Mari and Mari and School Radio to Major Tom on my blog and my review for To Sleep so as to Dream was posted on V-Cinema. I also had a satisfying discussion about Whispering Corridors and Memento Mori for a Heroic Purgatory podcast recording.

Happy Weekend.

I hope you are well.

This week, I’ve not posted anything here but a re-written review for Mayu Nakamura’s Among Four of Us, an interview with director Nakamura, and a review of School Radio to Major Tom were all published on V-Cinema as part of Japan Cuts 2021 coverage. I have more features to cover and maybe a smattering of New York Asian Film Festival 2021 reviews I am still working on.

On top of that, I will be doing a podcast recording for the first two entries in the Whispering Corridors series of K-horror films – Whispering Corridors and Memento Mori. I’ve reviewed most of the series before back in 2012 and haven’t watched them since. I still need to watch them but haven’t had time.

I’ll start doing festival work now so reviews will be a bit patchy from here on out but I’ll keep up the trailer posts.

I hope you are doing well.

This is the first of a two-part trailer post. I’m still a bit ill but hoping that I am on the path to recovery. I slowed down with my reviews this week and only did I Don’t Fire Myself and then wrote some articles providing festival coverage, one for Japan Cuts and the other for the Edinburgh International Film Festival. I also wrote a review for Jigoku no Hanazono: Office Royale. I also took part in a Heroic Purgatory podcast recording covering the classic 1995 cyberpunk anime Ghost in the Shell, which, to me, is a perfect film.

I hope you are all well.

I am still a little ill but that hasn’t stopped me from watching and writing about films. This week I posted reviews for The Fable: The Killer Who Won’t KillTonkatsu DJ Agetaro, and Hold Me Back. I’ll be doing a Heroic Purgatory podcast with Ghost in the Shell being the film the episode is dedicated to Ghost in the Shell, the anime movie from the 90s.

This week I watched Room 237, The Pusher, Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku and a bunch of New York Asian Film Festival films that I will write about soon!
