    A Touch of Zen

    ★★★★½

    Well, I absolutely loved this.

    It starts off as a horror mystery of sorts then elevates itself again and again to higher levels in terms of both theme and genre.

    Classic wuxia action combined with resonant themes, gorgeous scenery and captivating characters make this a film to remember and one to cherish.

    Martyrs

    ★★★½

    I haven't seen many films which commit to this level of torture and violence, however I do know that some of them (I'm looking at you 'Human Centipede') seem to not really have a message or themes behind them.

    I found this was not the case for 'Martyrs.

    This is an incredibly disturbing film, and I do not say that lightly at all. I had trouble watching it in parts, and felt truly horrified by some things that I was…
