I believe Joan Chen is in this film. And I must declare, screaming from the mountain tops, that she is perhaps the most beautiful woman of modern cinema. And I look forward to this film.

It's that the mother fucker can write an eloquent review. I was actually thinking about skipping this in theaters given the mixed things i had heard as of late and the shameful amount of films I have yet to see (Into the Wild, Jesse James, Once, etc.) but now I feel I've gotta catch this. I suppose it's only right given that Lee's last film is probably one of my favorites of all time. Thanks alot Mori, you bastard.

Well, I guess that someone like you would consider such horrible writing eloquent. After all, you want to see Into The Wild.

Sweet. Gotta get me tickets for this.

Hopefully. He's simply one of the great actors of our time. I've known that for about 15 years!

You know, seeing as how it's the Asian version of Black Book and all. Seriously, I'm looking forward to this. I've liked almost everything Ang Lee has done. Even parts of the Hulk. Namely, the parts without Jennifer Connelly. I'm so tired of seeing her play the same role the same way. Someone needs to dump a giant bucket of poo on her head.

Unfortunately, due to other work commitments, I missed the screening of this one this morning.<p> Can't wait to see another great Leung performance, though. He was phenomenal in CONFESSION OF PAIN.

I thought he was a 2 time winner for that and Brokeback.

But they gave director to some other schmo. Probably the guy who did American Beauty.

I'll watch it at double-speed on DVD.

As you probably know I didn't agree with it 100%, but you brought up a lot of good points that changed my mind on a few things while I was reading it. Which is what a good review should do. I think I like the movie more in hindsight than I did while watching it.
Oct. 5, 2007, 6:34 p.m. CST
I desperately want to talk about this movie but I more desperately want everyone to see it without knowing too much.</p> I have to say though, I think it might be better than Brokeback Mountain, maybe not The Ice Storm. I need to let it sit for a while. And I definitely think it's the best film of it's genre that I've ever seen. I thought Tony Leung's performance was top notch. Of the movies I've seen this year I do think it's the best, meaning better than Eastern Promises, which I thought rocked hard. So everyone has to see both of them. Go right now. Shoo.

at least a nomination, to give daniel day lewis a run for oscar pool money. i'm not so sure i understand the Remains of the day analogy, but that could be a new catchphrase. speaking of academy awards, Brazil's choice was a film that literally translated is called "the year my parents went out on vacation" about a boy, who by a stream of events ends up living with an old jewish man while his parents are on exile from the Brazilian dictatorship, all this against the backdrop of Brazil winning the 1970 World cup. a true coming of age story filled with soccer, discovery of love and hate, religion and subversion. it's a true contender for next year's best foreign film award, but it has to be nominated in the top five first...does lust,caution fall in the same category, or what, does anyone know?
Oct. 5, 2007, 7:45 p.m. CST
but there's zero chance he gets an Oscar.

This has been playing in NY for the last week. Is it expanding to wide now, or just more select cities?

That stupid movie she made with Anne Heche (The Wild Side) was great. Anne Heche was totally chowing her box and it wasn't faked and she loved it. Mmmmmmm. I love me some spicy fortune cookie nookie.

Tony Leung is great, as is Tang Wei. But, to steal from pretty much every other review of the film, it should've been called Caution, Lust. And, while explicit, the sex scenes didn't work for me, for reasons I can't really talk about unless you've seen the film. (http://www.ghostinthemachine.net/004978.html)

True story. I will NOT be seeing the Ed Norton fiasco currently in production. Eric Bana IS Bruce Banner, the script makes you think about more than crushing cars and green monsters. No one but Ang Lee could take something as goofy as the incredible hulk and make it something to think about. Also, before I incur the wrath of Hulk comic book fans, lets be honest. It's impossible to incorporate the soul of a whole comic book series into a two hour film. Any comic book adaptation is just that, an adaptation. You get a glimpse of the themes from the comic book, and a partially standalone story. Thats not to say that douche-monkeys like Brett Ratner should get their hands on X-Men, but I think that the Hulk is WAAAY undervalued.

I generally dislike WW2 flicks, but loved it. I'll see this too, it does look along the same lines as BB and Mori saying so gets me more interested.

He EARNED that shit, homeboy. Make no mistake about it. Not just anyone can make a great film about cowboys fuckin each other.

This movie was dull as all hell... So dull that those crazy sex scenes couldn't save it.
Oct. 10, 2007, 10:55 a.m. CST
Soul, Schmoul. The Hulk IS about crushing cars and green monsters. I don't know WHAT Ang's movie was about, but it wasn't about The Hulk.
