  1.'s rating of the film Gook

    the first act is promising, warm and nice. but the 2nd and 3rd act just slip....

  2. paul_quixote's rating of the film Gook

    Milla's explanation re why she wears a flower in her hair might as well be a recitation of 2pac's "The Rose That Grew From Concrete." She's too often a thematic cipher &/or plot engine. Final moments are bafflingly spent replaying stuff from earlier, because, now, u know, we know what it MEANS. Big issues but the performances are great and I truly feel this movie has a lot to say about love and that's a rare thing.

  3. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Gook

    Strong echoes of "Do The Right Thing" by Spike Lee, a film which daringly demonstrates the perils of communication breakdowns.

  4. Michael Peer's rating of the film Gook

    Bold and aggressive, Justin Chon's Gook is not quite the visceral or immediate film I was hoping for. What we have here is a patient, assured film that loves it's period, characters and setting. On paper, the film sounds like Do the Right Thing told from an Asian perspective, but it lacks Lee's bold vision and nuance. In time, Chon may deliver great work, but for now, we have strong but not amazing directorial debut.
