    The Work


    On a technical level it's incredible how well-edited this is. Rarely feels like a documentary. I teared up for most of the film and cried heaps towards the end so yeah, to say this affected me is an understatement.

    Japanese Girls Never Die


    The third in Daigo Matsui's informal 'Japan Girls' trilogy. It's got Matsui's fingerprints all over it but perhaps would have benefited even more from being an original script/concept of Matsui's rather than an adaptation. Still, this is a great takedown of misogyny in Japan.

    The Beauty Inside


    I'm probably giving this film way too much credit but I found myself really enjoying this! The Beauty Inside takes its gimmick seriously which as a result turns it into a surprisingly solid romance. I needed this!

    Train to Busan


    The best blockbuster of 2016 isn't American; it's South Korean. A stressful and exhilarating ride. This country laughs at your attempts to create a zombie movie.
