1/7/2005 – Strong performances and a good story make this one a good watch. But, why on earth did she decide to take the drugs with her? Can’t she just haul ass and leave? odd plot point.
01/01/2005 – Strange and not in a good way.
12/26/2004 – Excellent thriller with with three perfect performances.
12/25/2004 – Very good protrayal of the life in the ‘hood’. All actors are terrific here and I like how developed and complex the characters are.
12/22/2004 – Smart dialogue and some well timed comedy. It really felt like I was watching a long episode of Sex and The City.
12/11/2004 – Very good and layered story. The performances are exceptional as well.
12/10/2004 – Holy crap! This was one pleasant surprise. I thought I hated Jet Li and his dumb one liners, but here he so works and he has no one liners. This is one gorgeous piece of film making with breathtaking sets, locations, costumes and choreography. The Rashomon-esque story is very good as well, but really, I can watch this one with the subtitles turned off and I’ll still enjoy it.
