CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, 2000, Sony
Pictures Classics, 120 minutes. Director Ang Lee virtually reinvented Chinese
cinema's wuxia swordplay genre with this startlingly good, moving romantic
adventure starring Michele Yeoh and Chow Yun-Fat as estranged lovers
searching for the stolen Green Destiny sword. Ziyi Zhang is the hotblooded, younger
girl who is equally adept at martial arts, bent with crossing blades with the two at every
opportunity. With celebrated veteran wuxia star, Cheng Pei-Pei as the
super-villainess, Jade Fox. Exhilirating! Nominated for 10 Oscars and winner of 4,
including Best Foreign Language Film. Admission
is first come, first served, the day of the screening.
Monday, December 5 4:00 PM
2046, 2004, Sony Pictures Classics, 130 min. Director Wong
Kar-Wai's moody, dreamlike saga of blurring times, destinies and dimensions. Tony
Leung Kar-Fai symbolically reprises his role from Kar-Wai's IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE, but
this time is an embittered soul in the near future of 2046, a kind of
romantic-reincarnated-as-cynical-libertine, breaking the hearts of various women,
including Bai-Ling (Ziyi Zhang.) With Gong Li, Takuya Kimura and Maggie Cheung.
Admission is first come, first
served, the day of the screening.
