Some of the best films I have seen in my capacity as a member of 
the New York Film Critics Online (NYFCO) are those shown at the 
yearly New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF), and among those 
Korean films rank the highest. One in particular—”Save the Green 
Planet!”—was impressive enough for me to nominate as Best Film at 
NYFCO’s award ceremony in 2005. That was enough to raise eyebrows 
among my colleagues to astral levels, a function no doubt of their 
unaccountable preference for “The Squid and the Whale”. My advice 
to Netflix members is to rent “Save the Green Planet!“ right away 
to see what you’ve been missing. If you don’t love this film, then 
clearly something is wrong with you.
