Shadow had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Also: Bernie Sanders, the coddling of the American mind, Kendrick Lamar’s spirituality, Kim Davis, Doctor Who, and Superman’s new relevance.
I wholeheartedly recommend Hero for anyone remotely interested in delving into the world of Chinese swordplay films.
I need to stop the review lest it just become a checklist of everything I dislike about the movie.
House of Flying Daggers has moments of brilliance that are simply unmatched.
The film’s realistic approach is refreshing and the children’s’ performances are both cute and poignant.
Zhang Yimou’s entry into the wuxia genre is majestic, stirring, and beautiful. Oh, and it features some kick-ass action sequences, too.
