5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and Moving- a masterpiece, 7 April 2010
This review is from: Lust, Caution [DVD] (DVD)
A great film concerning love berayal, lust and loss.

The script highlights the paranoia of power, the feeling of overt control coupled with the fear someone is going to take it all away. The assassin is sent to destroy the man from within by killing him but succumbs to his powerplay. The film twists and turns into its final cataclysmic finale where the man has the twist of the knife turned into him metaphorically as he becomes shredded by loss.

This film captures so many psychological essences, you would have to be severely emotionally shut down not to connect, just as the protagonist is emotionally dead.

The camera work is long slow and captures the mood and essence. It is a perfect film working on so many levels. It is a haunting film lingering for days after the event. Either you connect with it or you don't.

It does have the smack and bite of reality. How do I know? I've worked within power structures and seen minor variations of these event happen, as has anyone else I have spoke to. Thankfully I am well away from this world now but it is a stark reminder of the deadened emotional world of power.
