Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
71% Personal Best (1982) Which horrible Eighties haircut to choose? Regardless, you'll be rewarded with some of the most startling and texturally stunning American cinema of that largely barren zone shortly thereafter to be known as the Reagan era. Score!‐ Film Comment Magazine

87% 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

89% 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

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

81% Beautiful Boxer (2005) It seems some fences just can't be painlessly straddled -- no matter how much clearance your plastic surgeon provides.‐ Village Voice
