New York City — Showtimes & Events

Sunday March 18th: Editor’s Pick

7:00 at Japan Society [Program & Tix]

OASIS
Lee | 2002 | S. Korea | 132m
“Love Will Tear Us Apart”
7:00 at Japan Society

Oasis is clearly one of the strangest films from anywhere, focused as it is on the socially disruptive romance between a slightly retarded and socially maladjusted ex-convict and a young woman almost completely disabled by an attack of cerebral palsy. Take my word for it: Oasis is one of the most deeply felt love stories of the screen in ways that you must endure a little suffering of your own to appreciate… passionate without being sentimental, and poetic without being evasive or euphemistic. I’ve never seen anything quite like it.”
Andrew Sarris, New York Observer [Read More]
