  • Cycling Angels (2016) (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Taiwan Version)
    The long ride home
    July 27, 2017 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    In 2012, the Taiwan documentary Go Grandriders about the inspiring round-island motorbike trip of a group of senior citizens set a new local box office record for documentaries. Four years later, we make the round-island pilgrimage with riders from the opposite end of the age spectrum in Cycling Angels. The first film from director Paul Chu, Cycling Angels documents the 1,200 km cycling journey of a group of children from the Yunlin County Xinyi Orphanage, the youngest of whom was only eight years old. This great test of physical and mental endurance is taxing even for adults, let alone young children who have already been through too much for their age. But, as the orphanage director...

  • Too Young to Die! (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (Japan Version)
    Hell of a comedy
    July 25, 2017 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    It takes a certain kind of person to turn the tragic deaths of a busload of teenagers and the terrifying images of Japanese hell into an over-the-top comedy, and that person is Kudo Kankuro. The master of wacky, talky and strangely thoughtful comedies returns to the director's chair for his fourth feature film, Too Young to Die!, which may be his weirdest yet. Too Young to Die! begins with a bus full of high school kids meeting an untimely end on a field trip. Bratty protagonist Daisuke (Kamiki Ryunosuke) wakes up in "jigoku," a fiery Buddhist-based vision of hell in which sinners suffer in different levels of gruesome punishments. Horned demon Killer K (Nagase Tomoya), the leader of the... [read more]
  • Princess Weiyoung (2016) (DVD) (Ep. 1-54) (End) (China Version)
    A meaningful twist on a revenge tale
    July 25, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    A typical Chinese palace drama, such as Legend of Concubine Zhen Huan and The Legend of Mi Yue, usually delivers a strong message of female empowerment and involves romance, power struggle, revenge and betrayal. To fit this type of dramatic plot, the protagonist is often designed to be a concubine's daughter who is destined to bring bad luck and becomes reluctantly embroiled in a fierce power fight with her once beloved sister. Despite its formulaic plot about the underdog tale of a brilliant and lionhearted fallen princess, Princess Weiyoung still possesses unique charms that kept me watching. In the original novel The Concubine's Daughter Is Poisonous, Li Weiyoung is the third child of... [read more]
  • Beenzino - 24:26 (5th Anniversary Remaster Edition)
    Modern hip-hop classic
    July 14, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    During his Hot Clip days, Beenzino experimented with different genres to produce refreshing hip-hop sounds. After forming Jazzyfact with producer Shimmy Twice, he established his unique jazz rap style and soon became one of the most sought-after rappers in the music scene. The pioneering musician emerged as a soloist in 2012 with his first album 24:26, which has a significant influence on the development of Korean hip-hop. Breaking the convention of hip-hop music, the album is a groundbreaking release that deserves classic status. While the lead-off track Nike Shoes looks like an advert song for the sports brand, it's actually a breezy love song about Beenzino's ideal type. Primary's groovy... [read more]
  • Heize EP Album - ///
    Love in the rain
    June 30, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    Known for her distinctively soothing groove, Heize often expresses the feelings of exasperation and anger in a peacefully rebellious tone. Her anger gives way to sorrow and regret in her third mini-album ///, which uses rain to create different lyrical emotions. The sentimental singer-songwriter reveals the internal pain of separation in her deeply felt songs steeped in heartache, remorse and yearning. In the music video of "Don't Know You" (Track 1), Heize introduces 14 violent ways to lose a teddy bear, such as hitting, slapping and burning. The rapper's exaggerated portrayal of a dismissive girlfriend in the music video provides a heartbreaking contrast to the apologetic lyrics about the... [read more]
  • NINAGAWA Macbeth (2015) (DVD) (Japan Version)
    Ninagawa's last Macbeth
    June 29, 2017 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Japan's foremost theater director Ninagawa Yukio passed away last May at the age of 80. The renowned director leaves behind a tremendous legacy as one of the world's most masterful and imaginative interpreters of Shakespeare, continuously transforming the Bard's classics into distinctly Japanese productions over a four-decade career that garnered wide acclaim at home and abroad. Boldly bearing the director's name right in the title, Ninagawa MacBeth was first staged to lukewarm reception in Tokyo in 1980. Five years later, it became his first Shakespeare production to travel to Europe, and from there on, Ninagawa would take the world by storm. Ninagawa MacBeth had several re-runs in Japan...
