    The Work

    ★★★★½

    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

    ★★★½

    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.
