All posts for Movies in 2013


Bushido (Bushido: The Cruel Code of the Samurai) (Bushidō zankoku monogatari)

The cruel cost of the samurai code, across the generations.

The Great Gatsby (2013)

A punch bowl full of glitter and treacle.

The Rabbi's Cat

A quirky and wholly original fantasy that's akin to an Isaac Bashevis Singer story mixed with an issue of Heavy Metal.

Gate of Hell

One of the best films of 2013 appears to have been made in 1954, and has now been lovingly restored for the ages.

The Dark Knight Rises

The last installment gives us the Batman we deserve rather than the Batman we want. Not a bad thing, actually.

Hara-Kiri (2012)

Takashi Miike's remake of this austere '60s samurai classic is well-made and watchable, but why remake perfection?

The Dark Knight

For some, The Dark Knight was the moment when the “comic book movie” finally became cinema. For others, it was the moment when the bottom fell out.
