Rating: 4/5 -- The director pays exhaustive attention to sound editing and mise-en-scène. Full Review
Combining Hou's patient, observant style with a historical martial arts tale, the film is a fascinating hybrid of craft, genre and story.

Rating: 2/5 -- The Assassin is undeniably one of the most beautiful-looking films to come out all year - however fans of interesting characters, cinematic thrills and coherent narratives should look elsewhere. Full Review
One Room With A View
Enigmatic and often mesmerizing, super-saturated with color, drawn like a still plain ripped by brief, unexpected gusts of wind -- THE ASSASSIN is one of the most flat-out beautiful movies of the last decade, and also one of the most puzzling. -- Grade: A-
Sweeping, gorgeous, and head-scratchingly inaccessible, The Assassin is a challenging watch that asks much of its audience. Full Review
Rating: 1/5 -- May just be the most tedious and enervating kung-fu movie ever conceived. Full Review
Set in 9th-century China during the Tang Dynasty, a general's daughter (Qi Shu) who had been abducted as a child and trained by a nun in the martial arts, returns to her birthplace after thirteen years to kill the governor (Chen Chang) to whom she was once slated to marry. But first, she must confront her parents and her long-simmering repressed feelings in her struggle to decide whether to kill her former love or betray her orders as a righteous assassin.
