Ashes of Time Redux (1994)

Wong Kar-wai directs Tony Leung Ka Fai, Leslie Cheung and Brigitte Lin in this Hong Kong martial arts adaptation where various assassins, their loves, employers and targets cross paths at a desert inn.

Best of luck following this. Beautiful but featuring only one very quickly pared down fight sequence. Made me realise that an egg in its own way is a birdcage. Not the deepest philosophical realisation ever but tells you where my mind was when I gave up trying to follow the half realised subplots.
