FILM: Ang Lee

Ang Lee's 'Life of Pi' (2012) was a disappointment. 

It was gratifying to find 'Lust & Caution', a 2007 espionage film, masterful.  The acting superlative in the leading roles of Mr. Yee - Tony Leung* and Tang Wei as Wong Chia Chi - wow!
Ten minutes of erotic love making took 100 hours to film. If you look up the number of scenes barred by the Chinese Censor on the Internet it is mind boggling - maddening for Ang Lee, a Taiwanese American. 

*Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi in the Wong Kar-Wai film 2046 is one of my favourite movies ever.
