This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The Beasts opens with Xan Anta (Luis Zahera) and his younger brother Lorenzo (Diego Anido) wrestling to get control of a wild horse. The scene, for all its muscular violence, is shot in close-up, which makes the struggle look peculiarly intimate, with the men’s grip on the beast’s neck a tough yet also tender embrace. This opening will later find its mirror when we the Anta brothers treat a human character similarly. Indeed, Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s feature is structured around symmetries…
In one of my favourite college classes, I read about how a classic Korean film thought to be lost, suddenly turned up in a kimchi pot. I couldn't tell you jack shit from most of my college classes, but that has stayed with me. So much of history is based on what's available. So much is lost due to the ravages of time, and targeted erasure (in the case of Korea, Japan and the U.S. controlled film production during the…
Glasgow Film Festival 2022 Film #19 | Check out my full review here: www.spoilertv.com/2022/03/movies-gff-2022-hommage-review.html
Last one in from GFF that I need to review and I really liked Hommage. It's a powerfully understated drama that looks into the past of Korea's film industry and explores the trouble facing female directors who historically operated within its circle- introducing us to Lee Jung-eun as an underpaid director who has made three films yet is losing money each time out. As she is…
a beautifully meditative film that celebrates both south korean film and its female filmmakers:)
this was made with so much love and appreciation and that works so kindly in the film's favour:) playing wonderfully into its fictitious meta-narrative emerges this story of womanhood and the continued motif of one's 'shadow self'. paired with a dreamlike colour palette, a reflective demina and a warm sense of humour; this film attests to the pertinence of simply loving the very form of cinema itself:)!!!
it was incredible to hear shin speak to her work today!!! what an incredible woman !!!!!!
Ryohei Suzuki... what a showcase! Hio Miyazawa also did great.

Tokyo International Film Festival #14 (FINAL)
Oh this is really well-told. What I feared would be a little too plain for a gay love story was told with so much love and both implicit and explicit effection, wrapping its arms around your heart till delivering a brutal but hopeful ending
World Premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival 2022
This was a gay love story about the relationship between a successful fashion editor and a down-on-his-luck personal trainer.
I had expected a rather shallow film but it was far from it. There were scenes that were sweet and sexy but other scenes that were surprisingly powerful and moving. The story also went in directions that I didn’t see coming.
Both lead actors were very good but Ryohei Suzuki’s perfornance as Kosuke was truly outstanding.
This is easily my favourite film of the festival so far.

TERRORIZERS tells a complex tale of the origins of violence through the seemingly random but interconnected lives of modern youths in Taipei. Disagree with some aspects of the script but its structured well, allowing the actors to give layered performances. Flawed but fascinating work from Ho Wi Ding.
Films screened at the 35th Tokyo International Film Festival, October 24 - November 2, 2022.
