十面埋伏 (2004)

English title: House of Flying Daggers


滿城盡帶黃金甲 (2006)

English title: Curse of the Golden Flower


Not as good as House of Flying Daggers as I recall. Possibly not Hero either.

Sexist asshole-emperor! Fuck your "natural order"!
Fucking stupid that that man outranks her even though she's the one with closest ties to the royal bloodline. (of course the whole thing hierarchy/bloodline thing is stupid, but this makes it worse.)

I'm assuming it's gonna be some epic and tragic ending where almost everyone dies but a few a left to mourn what happened. That's what happens when you repress feelings and pretend everything is okay. ;) All those deaths just because a couple of people can't behave! Almost sends a message that the common person is totally insignificant. But then it's probably more metaphorical.

大红灯笼高高挂 (1991)

English title: Raise the Red Lantern


Beautiful audiovisually! Creepy story/scenario!

Maybe an example of internalized misogyni, women mostly competing with other women in a patriarchal society? Down with the patriarch and his goons!

A pro straight-edge message.

英雄 (2002)

English title: Hero


Not as good as House of Flying Daggers or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Might still deserve a 4, though.


English title: Shadow


Visually beautiful!
