    Throne of Blood

    ★★★

    Brilliant cinematography and atmospheric special effects, and a great story borrowed from Shakespeare, but boring in some bits.  Get on with it!

  • Your Name.

    Your Name.

    ★★★★

    An interesting concept told in a wonderfully surprising way, going off in directions I never expected, and producing an epic feeling of equal satisfaction and wistfulness. Top quality animation and masterful direction kept me totally engaged all the way through. This is a really special film.

    28 Up

    ★★★★

    The children of 7 Up are now fully fledged adults, and it's getting more interesting seeing how dramatically some have changed since 21, for better or worse. It seems clearer now that the series' premise - that our future personalities are determined from a young age - is not correct at all.

  • The Wind Rises

    The Wind Rises

    ★★★

    As an exercise in beautiful imagery, it's almost unparalleled. The storyline is touching and memorable, although the pacing is all over the place. Hope you like planes.
