Kundun
Perfect 1 Points 1997

Excellent film about the story of the Dalai Lama and his being forced from Tibet. At times humerous, always beautiful, at times heartwrenching, yet it doesn’t end leaving you depressed. This movie also serves as a good introduction to Tibetan Buddhism for Westerners and of the Dalai Lama’s non-vi…

Mongol
Perfect 83 Points 2007

Perfect from the first frame, this fascinating historical epic succeeds as enchanting love story, enthralling war movie and breathtaking nature film. Recounting the life of Temudgin from his noble boyhood to his emergence as Genghis Khan, Mongol puts to shame most action movies, with their con…

Capote
Perfect 9 Points 2005

Truman Capote was many things: a brilliant writer, a New York sociallite, the ultimate insider, fixed on martinis, and a teency bit disturbed. To put it simply, he was one of the most fascinating and controversial figures of the 20th century. In Capote, director Bennett Miller brings the real-lif…

Perfect 66 Points 2002

Delightful bio of golden producer Robert Evans, the man behind The Godfather, Chinatown, Marathon Man, Urban Cowboy, Sliver & How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days — to name a few from immortal to shameless. Picked as a movie star himself, while lounging around the Beverly Hills Hotel pool no less, …

The Devil's Double
Perfect 83 Points 2011

Saddam Hussein’s elder son Uday savaged Iraq for decades until US Special Forces took him out in 2003. The devil gets his due in The Devil’s Double, a high octane biopic based on his body-double’s memoirs.

From outrageous tragedy a magnificent movie emerges, momentous as a hurtling Mercede…

Buck
Perfect 83 Points 2011

Makes you proud to be an American, a movie like Buck. A documentary about legendary horse trainer Buck Brannaman, the deep wisdom, transcendent techniques and honest humanity of its subject make Buck a profoundly rewarding cinematic experience, horses or no.

Brannaman deserves more fame t…

The Social Network
Perfect 103 Points 2010

Old media trumps new in The Social Network, in which dirty-sexy-money fuels a splendid drama about the elitists behind Facebook’s insanely great success. Boy billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, his erstwhile Harvard cronies and business Svengali come vividly to life under the direction of sordid mast…

Senna
Perfect 83 Points 2010

You needn’t be a racing fan to appreciate this cinéma vérité biography of superstar Formula One champion Ayrton Senna. An appreciation for bravura cinema, natural genius or Eurostyle glamour are other appetites the movie satisfies.

Senna draws from copious footage of the handsome young r…

Ed Wood
Perfect 9 Points 1994

This is easily my favorite Tim Burton movie alongside Batman and Edward Scissorhands. This is an inspirational film about someone who pursues their passion no matter how much they suck at doing it. Johnny Depp plays Edward D. Wood Jr, the infamous filmmaker who has been dubbed "The Worst Director…
