I have to agree with this.


Welcome on board to my dinosaur world.  :)

I have to say that I feel very old when talking to youths nowadays.  It is not normally that I watch or get to watch a man having sex with a woman and what more, it was so crude and explicit.  But I think youngsters these days get TOO MUCH exposure so much so that they are immune to it.  Either that, or they simply can't tell the difference .... which is SAD indeed.  Would there come a time when we would cease to feel "shy", "embarrassed" and "shame"?  I hope we will preserve these qualities as they put a check on our human behaviour and makes us different from the lesser ones. We are human beings and supposedly to be sophisticated, cultured and refined. What happens to us?

Then no one wants to watch it if it has to deal with pertinent issue. You know a lot of women went to watch the movie just to see Tony's private part. Ang Lee earned a lot of women's money on this movie.  


That's why I don't watch much movies and won't waste my time and money on cheap "hard-sells". :)

Really? Ah, that's what I heard too and I was expecting him to stand undressed in full view before the camera.  Quite sad, we got cheated.

But I think he earns a lot of Chinese money too, be it Lust, Crouching Tiger or Hero.  I watched the latter 2 on TV, free airing, but they were a total washout.  I just don't understand why Chinese like Lee so much.  Because he is a Chinese and he rubbed shoulders with some Hollywood stars and directors?  I hope we are not so shallow.

My conclusion (which I will elaborate later) is that Lust and Caution is just a movie, a pornography or a pornographic movie (certain a “rated” and “adult” movie) and it has got nothing to do with “patriotism” or the “political” contents which many assume was its purpose or one of its purposes.   


Serious question - have you ever watched any real pornography?

I am asking because a) your views on pornography and b) you feel the movie under discussion is pornography.

On the subject of pornography ...

A FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE? NO. She should not be censured, and Mr. Yi should be censured. Wang Jiazhi was only a tragical character. With the momentary slip of feeling, she was not able to restrain ...

the duty is more hard to her, and over a normal woman ability.

I LOVE IT.

I love the movie. The cast ,performance,and the story is so excellent that you can be distracted from the movie for a second.
May be some criticist showed their disappointment to the director  .But that is Ann Li , you always can feel the same motion in all his films,the human instinct motion, including the family love ,even the sex.
No matter what the criticism is good or bad ,there is no doubt that the movie had throw a bang to the chinese movie and is becoming a milestone in the history of chinese  movie .

Oh, yes, when you have no one qualified to grace the Hollywood-like dirty carpet, this is the best you can hope for.
