zhang yimou's "curse of the golden flower"
like an opera: over-the-top high drama. incest. betrayal. assassinations. explosive colors and chinese babes. what else could anyone want?
also right before caught almodovar's "volver"-- refreshing! delicious! masterfully shot! penelope cruz is hot and wonderful in her native language! everything 100% fucking great.
then i saw "the queen"-- meh-- made-for-tv movie-- ok, but nothing to jump about.
