Great acting, excellent directing and interesting subject matters all feature in our list of 15 well executed short films. Apricot – A chance encounter between a mysterious man and a beautiful woman soon becomes deeply personal. Sebastian’s Voodoo – A voodoo doll must find the courage to save his friends from being pinned to death.
Rather than simply rattling off a bunch of "extreme" films (don't get me wrong-- those lists fascinate me too) I'm trying to provide a bit more context for some of the more notorious, or otherwise dark and troubling films out there.
Our staff’s review of the decade continues, and today I’ll be taking on the massive task of trying to list the best fifty anime that came out this decade, as I saw them. As is fairly obvious by now, I can only list the anime that I saw, and I’ve taken the policy of not putting ongoing series on the list, even though there are a couple of gems that are still currently airing (such as Cross Game and Kemono no Souja Erin ). Also, some of the series on this list started airing in 1999, but ending in 2000.
