Farewell My Concubine

"Farewell My Concubine": is there anything more deliriously alien and beautifully overwrought to the average Western Art mind (well, mine, at least) than Peking Opera? Even the colours run to different scales.... But what’s the lesson here? -- that heroically spiteful self-absorption wins out in the end? That to be truly apolitical means to prostitute yourself to all politics?

(Part of Flix).

Immediately after watching it I thought I hated that movie, but I recently concluded I liked it a lot.
