Midnight Eye. 3/07.

Linda Linda Linda Just weeks after Midnight Eye readers voted Linda Linda Linda their favorite film of 2006 - and by a comfortable margin, too - Tom Mes interviews director Nobuhiro Yamashita.

Also new at Midnight Eye, Dean Bowman: "Kwaidan harks back to a time when the ghost story was not a vehicle for delivering as many gore-ridden shocks to the audience as possible, but was concerned with creating a dense emotional atmosphere, rich in poignant moments of sadness and a pervasive sense of loss."

Nicholas Rucka argues that Shadow Hunters "shelves any real sense of contemporary political criticism by means of a period genre film for something of a standard story. Which is too bad, because the film could've benefited from something sharper of a critique like, say, Lady Snowblood 2: Love Song of Vengeance does."
