Dung che sai duk (Kar Wai Wong, 1994) aka Ashes of Time

Ashes of Time (Kar Wai Wong, 1994)
Rating: 7.5

The DVD transfer for this film is atrocious, as both sound and image are desaturated, the sound effects (especially the swordplay) was embarrassingly campy, and I've never been a fan of Kar Wai Wong's overuse of slow shutter speeds, but aside from that, this is another solid film from the Chinese auteur with an amazing script.
