FLICK PICK: Curse of the Golden Flower
This has always been one of my favorite movies of all time. This movie has all the ingredients of a classic: 1. Rich, beautiful set design and costumes, 2. Great and engaging story and music, 3. Excellent performances, 4. Nigh perfection in camera work. I'm usually iffy about period pieces but this film is too immaculate to ignore. The thing is that it's one of those movies that if you choose to watch it, you have to WATCH IT. It's not one of those films you can walk in and out of and still be in the loop... ok? I was so happy when I found it on DVD for like $5 in a bargain bin a few years back. Ugh, I can't tell you how awesome this film is... you just gotta experience it for yourself, dude.
