    Dune

    ★★★★

    Scenario: Dune is placed in the far future, when mankind has excelled in many branches of science while also developing in many metaphysical realms.

    Directing: Villeneuve decided to establish himself being one of the decade's most prolific directors. With surprising ease, he transitions across numerous matters, cinematic methods, and styles.

    Directing: Yang's film revolves around a fourteen-year-old protagonist named Xiao Si'r, a nickname that translates to "Little Four," indicating that…

    Yi Yi

    ★★★★★

    Scenario: Yi Yi recounts a warm season in the life of a Taipei household around the turn of the century. It begins with a wedding, concludes with a funeral, and then takes a break for a birth around the midpoint mark, but none of these events are given the significance that other films would. 

    Directing: It stands now as a testament not only of Yang's expertise, but also of how few directors possess the vision and empathy that humanistic cinema…
