The Assassin (2015, dir. Hou Hsiao-hsien)

In 9th century Japan, a young female assassin is ordered to kill her cousin; the man she was once betrothed to. Visually-stunning wuxia arthouse (martial arthouse?) flick, more interested in painterly scenes than in traditional action thrills; still, a wonderful thing to behold. Recommended.

2017 Golden Horse Awards Red Carpet Wish List

The 2017 Golden Horse Awards will honor the best in Chinese-language films of 2016 and 2017 coming up on November 25, 2017. I love a good Chinese awards show or film festival because the stars of Chinese cinema love some glamour on the red carpet and I am expecting many gorgeous moments on the red carpet this years show. 380 more words

The Adventurers (Stephen Fung, 2017)

Almost thirty years after A Moment of Romance, Andy Lau still looks impossibly cool riding a motorcycle. He does it here as the lead of a small gang of jewel thieves in Stephen Fung’s heist movie, his first film since the lunatic double punch of 2012’s Tai Chi 0 and Tai Chi Hero. 629 more words
