house of flying idiots
as i have said ever since way back, people who are in love tend to be stupid. i'm not saying it's a bad thing, but generally it is, nor am i saying that it's wrong, but usually it leads to something that is. what i am saying is love tends to make people less logical maybe because love is not really in the bounds of logic.
and here comes house of flying daggers
, which recently came out on DVD.
i love this movie! to those who haven't seen the zhang ziyi flick, you should. don't mind if you have to read subtitles, use the language feature of the DVD, watch it in french if you want to. it has lots of plot twists and surprises that are so ridiculous, it kinda circles back to awesome and profound.
and the scenes! the great green bamboo thicket scene! and all the members of the HoFD in their green garbs.
no denying that this is a love story concealed behind the martial arts action, pretty much like titanic with martial arts and no ship and less waters and icebergs. and yes, someone died, and yes, it was because of love. maybe we can all be stupid sometimes.
