Lust Caution by Ang Lee - Aiona - 03-20-2013

Ugh. Spoiler!

Spoiler :
Do not watch this movie if you are faint of stomach. I've seen two movies by Ang Lee. And I see a trend. I hated this movie the way I hated his "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." I just wanted to shake the characters and go, "What are you doing??? Walk away!" I really liked, though, his attempt to show the Japanese occupation with a candor that few movies except the documentaries do. My grandparents used to tell me of the atrocities during the occupation, but that is all I ever hear of it. Movies except this one seem to avoid the topic like the plague. Not sure why.

Spoiler :
I had trouble with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon too, with that man chasing the young woman all over the place saying "I want to teach you." He really had very little sense of the situation. I think the only thing that saved the movie for me was her final act of self sacrifice. I'm just not sure why.
Movie is in my queue.

Unfortunately, I could not keep up with the subtitles. I gave up trying to watch.

I love some of Ang's movies. Sense and Sensibility, Brokeback Mountain and oh The Ice Storm. I had that one in my queue but it didn't look interesting to me. I can't seem to deal with subtitles anymore either, so I never rent subtitled movies.

I do have Life of Pi in my list but not too enthused by it as just the idea seams so silly, sharing a raft with a tiger and all. LOL But, I heard great things about that movie.

I haven't seen the movie, but I did the book _The Life of Pi_ back in 2003. Intrigued by the cover. Anything with a boat has my immediate attention. It was a fun read, once I got past the long documentary in the first third......

Speaking of Brokeback Mountain, I've only read two books by the author of the book. _Lonesome Dove_ also frustrated me. Same thing.
Spoiler :
I wanted to shake characters and say, "Stop! Don't you see? In Chapter so-and-so, you're gonna get killed!"
