Did anybody like "Unknown Pleasures"

Last week I rented "Unknown Pleasures" from the foreign movie section of our local Blockbuster.

I thought I would watch it with Mrs. Rong. She usually bitches about Chinese movies being boring, but she usually sits through them with me and gives me commentary on things that reminded her of her life in China.

This time was no exception. To my western mind, I thought it was a boring movie about a couple of losers who did nothing much but light cigarettes and ride around on a scooter. Mrs. Rong said as much herself. I pretended to be interested in the movie and said facetiously that she didn't understand the modern Chinese cinema.

The movie eventually ended. I then agreed with Mrs. Rong that it was a boring movie. She blamed it on the Japanese director.  I don't know, but it will probably be months and months before we rent another Chinese movie.

Red Cliff
It disappoint me, but I still recommend it to you.
It's not a good Three Kingdom movie for Chinese, but fairly good for foreigners to understand.

I have seen it. Technologically it's as good as the Lord of Rings. But it changes too many original elements in books.

If you know little about Chinese culture and Three Kingdoms, the moive is too perfect to disappoint you.

If that is recent, I would like to recommend 'Assembly'. It's a real men's movie.
