Miss Hokusai / Sarusuberi: Miss Hokusai (2015)

Perhaps a bit too fragmented if one were to go through the film with a fine tooth comb and choose to be nitpicky about the way the film has chosen to chronicle the life of Katsushika O-Ei, but otherwise Miss Hokusai honestly turned out to be a vastly satisfying, not to mention visually gorgeous experience. 420 more words

Ulasan: The Seaside Motel

Masih dari lanjutan obsesi saya pada Ikuta-san, film selanjutnya yang saya tonton adalah The Seaside Motel yang rilis pada tahun 2010. Pada 25 detik pertama saya sudah merasa tertarik pada cara pengambilan gambarnya, dan pada 2 menit pertama saya langsung mempunyai perkiraan yang bagus pada film ini. 425 more words
