J-Film Thoughts & Commentary: 1990-2000

Musings, praise, critique, descriptions, commentary…all in a few sentences.


Alright, here is a collection of some of my comments and thoughts on various films between 2000 and 1990.  The films that I have written reviews on elsewhere in my blog are not included here, find links to them in my J-Film Review Database.  This post will be continuously updated.

I have seen a massive amount of contemporary Japanese films, most of which were released post-2000.  Admittedly, I need to watch more classic cinema, and you’ll see more comments and thoughts trickle in as I watch more.  Many of these films here will be highly rated, just because I have chosen to watch good films that were recommended to me.  An entry on films released before 1990 will be posted in the future, as will entries on films released after 2000.  This is primarily a reference post that I will link to in my J-Film Review Database.  Please feel free to recommend any Japanese films released in this time period by commenting below.  Enjoy my opinions!
