Re: Rich Latta's letter to the editor "Ratings' Logic Is Stupid and Irritating
" [“Postmarks,” Feb. 17]: I also find the ratings system a little “stupid and irritating” sometimes with regard to whether or not a movie has reached perfection. In the five or so years that I have been reading the Chronicle
, I have never seen a film reach the coveted five stars. A couple of times movies have hit 4.5 stars – most recently A Separation
. I tried to search the AC
's website for five-star-rated films to see what perfection looks like, but I was not able to search by the number of stars. My question (or research assignment) for the Chronicle
staff is: Have one or more movies ever received the AC
's five-star rating, and if so, what are they?
