    Onoda: 10,000 Nights in the Jungle

    ★★½

    An interesting and different slow-burning, atmospheric (anti-)war film but I can’t see much more in it than what likes of Kôji Wakamatsu, Masao Adachi or Nagisa Ôshima have already mastered through their later works.

  • Deception

    Deception

    ★★★½

    Most possibly, the best Arnaud Desplechin’s film since A Christmas Tale. Desplechin takes Philip Roth’s homonymous novel and renders it into a very Freudian cinematic dream.

    I Was at Home, But...

    ★★★★

    Think about one of those Ingmar Bergman's hysterical female characters as if caught in an Ozu-ian family comedy-drama, directed by Straub and Huillet occasionally paying an homage to Bresson! Then, you may get a quick glimpse of what Schanelec is doing with I Was at Home, But... in her very own non-conformist refined style.

    ★★★★½

    This is not just one of the best films of the year but already one of the best of the new decade. A pure work on rhetorics of mise-en-scène, and rhetorical mise-en-scène.
