A cast of relative unknowns, a brilliantly disguised low budget and an epic, 37-minute opening single take makes Shin'ichirô Ueda’s feature debut a bright, breezy and laugh-out-loud hilarious zombie comedy.

A film crew is shooting a zombie horror flick in an abandoned water filtration plant, allegedly used for human experiments by the military. Just as the director browbeats his actors and demands more special effects blood, a real zombie apocalypse erupts, much to his auteur delight. Packed with meta-movie references as mocking as they are loving, this relentless takedown of the Living Dead genre is a total blast.

Made for just $27,000 with $0 spend on advertising, One Cut of the Dead - through word of mouth alone - has grossed $30 million at the Japanese box office.



“To me, the world is a mystery.” South Korean filmmaker Lee Chang-dong’s follow-up to 2010’s Poetry is a masterwork; a sublime mystery thriller of obsessive love based on Haruki Murakami’s short story ‘Barn Burning’.
