    Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in Peril


    The first hour of this is virtually perfect, with cold opening that introduces a sexy new villain, followed by an embarrassment of ridiculously entertaining fight scenes. I’m pretty sure this one inspired George R.R. Martin on multiple counts (Faceless man, flaming sword). Unfortunately it loses some steam after a certain character dies 30 mins too early.

    Confidently nihilistic early Cronenberg, but the script is somewhat repetitive.

    The Handmaiden


    The Handmaiden is revelatory. Every frame is pristine and the camerawork so effortlessly fluid. It's perfectly paced; novelistic yet never exhausting, as dark as it is funny, intensely erotic and shocking, and ever a step ahead. I won't do it the disservice of revealing any plot details. I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it, and it's a truly original tale that constantly reshapes itself. Give it all the awards. Best picture, acting, screenplay, director, cinematography, score, editing.…
