4/5 88% In Pursuit of Silence (2017) I generally consider myself a happy city dweller, but by the end of the film, I was thinking about when to make my next weekend retreat - and leave my phone and earphones behind.‐ Japan Times

2/5 No Score Yet I Want to Eat Your Pancreas (Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai) (2019) A high school quasi-romance that, depending on your tolerance for melodrama, will either leave you sniffling or wishing some zombies had shown up after all.‐ Japan Times

4/5 No Score Yet Penguin Highway (2018) The folks at Colorido would do well to ignore any such murmurs and simply create the kinds of films they want. With "Penguin Highway," they're on the right path.‐ Japan Times

2.5/5 80% Flavors of Youth (Si shi qing chun) (2018) While supporting young directors and international co-production are both admirable pursuits, I wonder how many viewers will be satisfied with the flavor of these somewhat under-baked shorts.‐ Japan Times

4.5/5 100% Mirai (2018) I think "Mirai" is, despite its family-size stakes, daring. It's this decision to portray the very real feelings and actions of a jealous child from that child's point of view that makes the film so admirable.‐ Japan Times

4/5 100% Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms (2018) Maquia is a solid directorial debut and, with its relatable message, it may also find the prolific screenwriter new fans.‐ Japan Times

3/5 80% Godzilla: Monster Planet (2017) Being two of Japan's biggest pop-cultural exports, it's a small wonder Godzilla and anime haven't been brought together before now. But better late than ever.‐ Japan Times

2.5/5 No Score Yet Eureka Seven: Hi-Evolution (2017) For first-time Eureka Seven viewers, Hi-Evolution 1 never quite delivers that "eureka" moment.‐ Japan Times
