Have Your Say: Who Is Currently The Best Screen Fighter?

5 hours ago

(And I fully expect the gloves to come off on this one...) This week has kind-of put me in a fighting mood, what with the Fantastic Fest Debates last weekend, and both Headshot and Boyka: Undisputed being the subject of some of our best-read articles. Also, a recent rewatch of Once Upon A Time In Shanghai (featured in the screenshot above) made me realize that I'd happily watch Philip Ng and Andy On doing "parcours" and beating the crap out of each other for twenty hours, with story only being an optional thing. Discussing the current crop of great on-screen fighters with actual martial artists got me surprisingly mixed and heated results. What one calls athleticism and skill is derided as empty show-boating by someone...

Fantastic Fest 2016 Review: Down Under, Not a Land of Racial Wonder, But Maybe It Should Be

26 September 2016 1:00 PM, PDT

The day after massive race riots in Sydney, Australia some 10 years ago, two carloads of impassioned and perplexed characters are moved to respond, calling upon deeply felt emotions that surge out of their bodies like cascading waves. What could possibly go wrong? Written and directed by Abraham Forsyth, Down Under perfectly captures the foolish pride and misplaced anger of racism. Having heard that "Lebs" and "Wogs" plan to storm Sydney beaches in protest of the race riots the day before that primarily victimized immigrants, the very white Jason (Damon Herriman, TV's Justified) gathers his mates to defend their land. First, though, he needs a car. On the other side of the racial divide, Nick (Rahel Romahn) feels properly steamed and is ready to start...

Pretty Packaging: Arrow's The Human Condition Boxset Stays Serious

26 September 2016 4:00 AM, PDT

Distributor Arrow is no stranger when it comes to releasing Japanese classics, but their UK branch just brought a title on the market which made us raise our eyebrows: Kobayashi Masaki's The Human Condition, a nine-hours-long contemplation on life and morality. Frankly, we expected Eureka to release this at some point as part of their Masters of Cinema imprint, given that they had such wonderful releases already of Kobayashi's other classics Kwaidan and Hara-Kiri. So we awaited the Arrow release with quite some interest, as it's not often you see a company other than Eureka go mano-a-mano with Criterion, who owns the Us Blu-ray rights to The Human Condition. And now that it's out, it looks damn fine. Picture quality is a great improvement over...

Fantastic Fest 2016 Review: Dearest Sister, In Touch With Inner Demons

25 September 2016 9:59 PM, PDT

With only her second film as director, Mattie Do takes a big step forward, both for herself as an artist and for Laos as a filmmaking community. Do broke ground with Chantaly, her debut as a filmmaker and also the first horror movie ever produced in the country. As with her first effort, Dearest Sister focuses closely on its characters rather than bloodletting or rollercoaster thrills; the pace is measured and deliberate and even more involving this time around. The atmosphere is built slowly, revealed through the eyes of naive country girl Nok (Amphaiphun Phommapunya, also the lead in Chantaly), who is sent by her family to help Ana (Vilouna Phetmany), a distant cousin in the city who is slowly going blind. Ana needs the...
