Thursday, August 7 Raise the Red Lantern at 7:15
(1991) dir Zhang Yimou w/Gong Li, Ma Jingwu, He Caifei
In 1920s China, Songlian (the incomparable Gong Li, appearing in six of the series' seven films) is forced after her father's death to become the fourth wife of Master Chen, a wealthy magnate. Each kept in a separate house on the master's compound, the wives plot against one another as they vie for their husband's attention. Perhaps the best example of the exquisite cinematography and meticulous storytelling for which director Zhang Yimou is known.
"a Chinese film of voluptuous physical beauty and angry passions" - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

That still leaves time to drag your fellow moviegoers along to the Comedy Studio after the movie, to catch the latter half of the show :)


(Unless it's a very long movie. The Comedy studio thing ends at 10pm).

If I'm awake, I'd like to go with you. I just walked for almost two hours and I was already about to collapse after work, so I may sleep for a very long time. If I don't call, I'm asleep.
