  • Ueda... manages to reinvigorate two of the most tired tropes cluttering our media landscape: art as meta commentary on art, and explosive diarrhea.

  • One Cut of the Dead isn't just charming. It's an earnest and funny love letter to all the microbudget dreamers who use all their heart and ingenuity to make their movie.

    September 26, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • You have to want to invest in his characters in order for One Cut of the Dead to really take off.

    September 13, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A master class in endless narrative inventiveness and an ode to the resourceful and collaborative spirit of hands-on filmmaking, "One Cut of the Dead" amounts to an explosively hilarious rarity.

    September 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's a savagely sharp comedy that uses the gleeful gore of zombie horror to accentuate the absurdity of filmmaking...

    September 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Shinichiro Ueda's zombie comedy is one that purposefully pretends to offer familiar zombie schlock only to rip the rug out from under us in an innovative, hilarious way. The level of detail is uncanny, and the comedy is equally matched by charm.
