This scene may have changed my opinion. Okayyy...I'll go check out his early stuff.

He's kinda like Jackie Chan. His American **** is sanitized and uninspired as far as martial arts goes, cause American directors don't know what to do with that ****. But his Chinese movies are amazing. The dude was a wushu champion on the... Chinese... international... circuit... or something? He won tournaments at least. The man is a martial arts machine.

I thought that Hero was excellent.

Yeah, that was pretty good. I'm not big on the whole flying swordsman genre, but that's one that I actually like. Def not one of my fav martial arts movies though.

I just can't get into Jet Li. Maybe it's because the few movies I have seen of his (The One and Romeo Must Die, among a few others) are pretty much crap.
Ah okay, I didn't realize that Who Am I? was post Hollywood breakout era. I wonder how good Rumble in Hong Kong was. You have piqued my curiosity to look for his earlier work.

I have a soft spot for most of his American movies. The One hits me in the nostalgia feels. War was another good one along with Hero and Black Mask to me.

You might like him in Once Upon A Time.

A Face in the Crowd (1957)

Frighteningly foretelling.

Melancholia for the 2nd time. Purposely waited a couple of years since my first viewing. Lars Von Triers is simply in a class all by himself IMO.

Every single second of this movie is a visual and dramatic masterstroke. Been a huge fan of Kirsten ever since her mind blowing performance in Interview With a Vampire. She's beyond brilliant in this.

A Single Man

One of the best movies I've ever seen. It does stream of consciousness in a way that I've never quite seen in film. Colin Firth and Julianne Moore play great performances and the introspective approach of the plot was really well done. Definitely going to be watching this a few more times.
