    The Bride with the White Hair, the 90s classic featuring Leslie Cheung and, in a a star-making role, Brigitte Lin as the titular heroine/villainess. Though the print wasn't the best - slightly blurry and washed out - Ronnie Yu's direction is nothing less than gorgeous. The lighting and camera work art artful, giving the story a mythical, almost surreal feeling. The tragic love story between warriors of different clans gets raunchier than one is used to in Chinese cinema, and the violence, while relatively cartoonish, may test your tolerance for beheading. However, it's still involving, and at times either funny or scary. In fact, it kinda turns into a horror movie there, towards the end, in large part thanks to the demented Siamese twin sorcerers who lead the evil cult against the forces of the Wu Tang Clan. The action's good, though not the real focus of the film, usually shot as lyrically as the rest. 8 years 10 months ago
