Movie Diary 10/28/2015

The Assassin (Hou Hsiao-hsien, 2014). A masterly and very patient hand at the helm of this film, which does exactly what it wants to do. Recommending it to fans of martial-arts pictures would be foolish, because despite a few flashes of sword, the movie isn’t really about that. You will have to watch it very closely to sort out the cast of characters, but just looking at it (and listening to it) is an eerie experience. (full review 10/30)
