The NY Times has called John Woo’s new film, Red Cliff–an epic historical drama based on a legendary 208 A.D. battle that heralded the end of the Han Dynasty in China–”a grand-scale war movie.” Another critic’s lauded it as the “best thing John Woo has made in years.” My mom, who’s seen the Asian release of the film, said, “The movie is very impressive, the cinematographic and big movie stars, big budget,” which is like a Hardass Asian Mom’s version of two thumbs way up.
We personally can’t wait to see it–the movie stars two of our boyfriends, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung–but Red Cliff doesn’t open until November 18. HOWEVER…DISGRASIAN readers in Los Angeles can see it this Wednesday, October 28, in the beautiful DGA Screening Room in Hollywood, for FREE.
