[9.50/10] Shadow (2018)

Shadow (2018)

Quick Review: Masterfully-shot by Yimou in a monochromatic style that exquisitely emphasizes the ink brush painting it is inspired by, through the sumptuously somber tone, washed- out color palette, and rain-drenched scenery, "Shadow" is a mesmerizing wuxia epic with profound characters, whose intricate intrigue-driven story with an elegant touch of romance is elevated by breathtaking set pieces, highly inventive fight choreography, striking use of slow-mo, and unique umbrellas as weaponry.
