It's been a little while since my last one of these, and I'm sorry about that. But I haven't actually died or anything, and there's still more to come! With just three days left in the festival (tonight included), some of the...
Japan Cuts has officially begun. Last night, the festival kicked off with the latest Takashi Miike film to hit our shores, The Mole Song: Undercover Agent Reiji, and then Sion Sono's Why Don't You Play in Hell, which I've alr...
Tomorrow marks the official start of the 2014 Japan Cuts film festival, which means today starts our official roundup series. We're kicking things off with two of the biggest films to play at the festival, Sion Sono's brillia...
