I’m a bit slow on the uptake at the moment – work’s been slamming me.

Featuring in their massive World Cinema program is Miike’s Hara-kiri, USA/HK production The Man with the Iron Fists (with Russell Crowe?!), Kim Ki-duk’s Pieta … (read more)

Asian cinema on the Gold Coast in April
You should already know this, but I don’t mind restating the awesome – the Gold Coast is, this month, the place to be. Why? Well, if you’re an Asian cinephile living in our (usually) sunny state and you don’t have tickets to the Gold Coast Film Festival already in your inbox, you’re going to kick yourself, because you’ll be missing out on some seriously fantastic films.
The GCFF program is featuring a wide range of films for all tastes. For … (read more)

Bleach on the Gold Coast
Okay, so those of you well familiar with our sunny GC might think this post’s title to be an exercise in stating the obvious, but that’s not the kind of bleach I mean. I do of course mean Bleach, the long running anime TV series based on Kubo Tite’s manga, and more specifically I mean the 4th and most recent movie, Hell Verse.
What does it have to do with the Gold Coast, you might ask? Well, just … (read more)
