  • Curse Of The Golden Flower

    This is a Jet Li film we can finally be proud of and a Ronny Yu work that will finally stand the test of time.

    ‘House Of Flying Daggers’ has too many trappings of an arthouse production that screams ‘self-conscious’ throughout.

  • Lust, Caution

    Apr 18, 2015

    The pace, the emphasis on spy procedure rather than spy spectacle and the often graphic nature of some scenes may not be to everyone’s taste but ‘Lust, Caution’ is a challenging film made for adults.

    As pleasing as ‘Temporary Family’ proves to be – and it balances comedy, drama and a scintilla of satire – it could have been even better with a few tweaks here and there.

  • The Bodyguard

    Sep 28, 2016
