Format: Blu-ray
Been waiting to see Wong Kar-wai's most recent effort for a few years now. A huge shame it still hasn't made it to UK shores, and I was ready to turn my nose up at this altered Weinstein cut but I was pleasantly surprised at the way it flowed. To be fair to Wong though that was probably mainly down to pitch-perfect acting from both Tony Leung (my favourite HK actor) and Zhang Ziyi (somewhat a modern wu xia veteran). The film itself was shot very differently from Wong's previous films, but its clear predecessor was Ashes Of Time - though that film was shot by regular DP Chris Doyle in a very fluid and vibrant manner this still retained the stretch-printing editing technique, called for a more theatrical 'noir' aesthetic with dramatic lighting and the odd instance of slow-motion macro shots. It's a very appealing approach, especially effective when intercut with the incredibly well-choreographed action sequences. The story is fairly easy to follow - much easier than only the 'Redux' version of Ashes Of Time I could get hold of - and tells a wonderful story about a great man, though unexpectedly does focus a lot on Gong Er more than I'd anticipated. Will be looking forward to seeing the full cut sometime in the future to compare, as the story did seem a little dumbed-down - but martial arts, Chinese history, wuxia and Wong fans alike, I urge you to watch this film.
