[11/10] Shi mian mai fu a.k.a. House of Flying Daggers (2004) – [16th Anniversary Re-Review]

House of Flying Daggers (2004)

Quick Review: Ingeniously-crafted and splendid to behold, "HoFD" is a stirring wuxia love story with a twist, driven by Ziyi's 'blind' devotion, that strikes with its divine beauty, due to the ravishing imagery saturated with contrasting mellow and vivid colors, picturesque locations, opulent sets rich in detail, and stupendous action stylized through innovative 'weapon tracing' shots, with the 'echo dance' scene and the 'bamboo forest' fight being truly jaw-dropping.
