Review (57:57):

We review Studio Ghibli’s Whisper of the Heart (1995), a quiet, thoroughly charming portrait of adolescence with universal resonance directed by the late, great Yoshifumi Kondo.  Tune in for the full review!

Review (38:30):

Although, taken for granted today, King Hu’s Come Drink with Me (1966) set the wuxia genre on a completely new footing.  By turning away from trained martial artists and instead hiring performers from the Beijing Opera school, such as the film’s magnificent female lead Chang Pei Pei, he began the process of transforming the type of action that defined these films away from the world of rigid, practical martial arts towards the more artful, flowing, and graceful form of combative dance that feature so strongly today.  Tune in for our full review of this Shaw Brothers classic that directly inspired Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon!

Review (50:50):

A trigger happy, diaper wearing, soccer player with Yakuza connections goes looking for revenge; an old man lives inside the belly of a whale for thirty years with only a plesiosaur as company; the main character has a foot race against God Almighty and wins!  All of this and more are only to be found in Mind Game, a funny, imaginative, and wonderfully delightful film by animator turned director Masaaki Yuasa.
