92. The Piano (B)

Jane Campion, rare female auteur, bringing cinema what it all too often lacks: Harvey Keitel's penis.

Joking aside, this is an interesting film, though I'd say it's flawed. The characters regularly act in ways that are screamingly stupid, and Anna Paquin's character completely reverses her position on Sam Neill in a way that is barely explained. The acting is great, particularly from Hunter and Paquin, who both won Oscars, but a film that is primarily a character piece should have the characters make a bit more sense than this does.
