Crouching Tiger review: magnificent. The most beautifully choreographed fight scenes ever shown on film. It’s kung fu-as-artform that rivals ballet in terms of elegance and beauty.
It’s also destined to be the greatest DVD movie of all time. There’s so much fast action that my eyes watered due to my not closing them enough. Scenes beg for a pause button, and a frame-by-frame toggle to catch it all. It must have taken months of preparation and practice for the actors to do many of the stunts, so I can’t wait to see a ‘making of’ mini-movie. I hope it becomes a two-disc set.
I’m going to have to see that again. Perhaps several times.
