[11/10] Wo hu cang long a.k.a. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) – [20th Anniversary Re-Review]

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)

Quick Review: Captivating with its splendorously refined and imposing visuals, this ethereal, often magical tale of love, honor, desire, revenge, and swordsmanship, with a touch of tender romance, ruled by Ziyi's tour- de-force turn, sets the bar for wuxia genre by virtue of Lee's immaculate direction, whose key strength is the kinetic duels and kung fu combats, masterfully-choreographed by Woo- Ping, and gracefully elevated by the gravity-defying wirework.

Twenty years ago - doesn't seem that long ago.

Feels like it was yesterday, right? Time flies so fast, it's unbelievable.
