On this Movie-Go-Round, Around the World, we watched one of our most colorful films to date; David brought us Zhang Yimou’s Hero. Jet Li and Donnie Yen battle epically, Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung love tumultuously. Is this movie more poetry than plot? Is it a stealth argument for Chinese imperialism? How did the crew feel about the wuxia style? Join us in our flowing, single-color robes as we discuss this Chinese classic.
