8The Last Emperor - 76/100 (1987)

This 219 minute true life story of Aisin-Gioro Pu Yi, the last ruler of the Chinese Ching Dynasty told in flashback managed to beat out Broadcast News, Fatal Attraction, and Moonstruck. Perhaps they decided to award the prize to the longest film that year. Vincent Camby said "Ultimately it's a let-down."

Rita Kempley of the Washington Post said "it's docudrama that dazzles, but basically Pu Yi (the lead) was a bore."

Truthfully, the film, directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, feels a little bit like medicine. You should like it because it's good for you but you really don't. In fairness, though, I can't watch three hours and forty five minutes of anything.
