Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
89% I Don't Want to Sleep Alone (2007) I Don't Want to Sleep Alone-which ends with a vision of fragile and drifting bliss as oneiric as anything in the swamp-moss-pherics of Andrei Tarkovsky-is nothing short of a dream ‐ Film Comment Magazine

88% Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2011) A film about recurrent visions and round-trip journeys: a movie not just about previous incarnations but about the possibilities of multiple and diverging paths into the future and out of the past ‐ Film Comment Magazine

98% Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) If only the first 10 minutes of Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West still existed, this most hyperbolic of oat operas would still be acknowledged as one of the genre's greatest exhumations. ‐ Village Voice

No Score Yet Usher (2005) Flush with evidence of Harrington's trademark blend of the strange and the sublime. ‐ Village Voice

100% Samurai Rebellion (1967) Austerely anti-authoritarian. ‐ Village Voice

75% JSA: Joint Security Area (Gongdong gyeongbi guyeok JSA) (2000) Park's film reveals its double agency by swinging between emotion-charged flashbacks of weepie male bonding and the investigative longueurs of the icy, half-Korean, half-Swedish female officer in charge of mopping up the brotherly bloodbath. ‐ Village Voice

80% Beautiful Boxer (2005) It seems some fences just can't be painlessly straddled -- no matter how much clearance your plastic surgeon provides. ‐ Village Voice

39% Men in Black II (2002) It isn't without a modicum of felicitous charms. ‐ L.A. Weekly
