The Children - You brought them into this world. Now ... They will take you out.

If ever there was a commendable lesson in modern day parenting then Tom Shankland's The Children is it. If you are going to be hippie, hipster, new-age, middle class, tosser parents and you force this upon your children then they will probably get sick in the head and kill you.

Love Exposure - Shion Sono

As a general rule, when a director can move seamlessly from knob gags to profound emotion, then he or she is doing something right. You can expect all of this and much, much more from Shion Sono in 2008's Love Exposure; despite being quite an undertaking with around a four-hour running time, this is not a film which ever felt boring, nor did it ove...
