Lust, Caution








Director - Ang Lee

Genre - Drama/Romance/Thriller/War


This is a soft porn masquerading as an espionage thriller. The production is lavish and Tony Leung's presence added class but when the film ends, all you'll remember is Tang Wei's 'revealing' performance. Coming from Ang Lee hot on the heels of 'Brokeback Mountain', this is indeed a letdown. Overlong and bogged down by a weak plot, we are left with only the charms of Tang Wei to sustain our interest. That's really not that bad considering she is one exquisite and wonderful actress, but in the end it's the cliched story that lost us.

2 STARS!

I am surprised that Lust, Caution received only 2 stars, considering all the rave that went on about it. I'm not sure if I'd watch this to test the waters myself (o my virgin eyes!), but your review is certainly something to think about.
