"Men should be like Kleenexes. Soft, strong, and disposable."

"Death cannot stop true love. It can only delay it a while."

House of Flying Daggers ( Shi mian mai fu )

Excellent Use of Color

I first saw this movie for an Architecture History class, and what really struck me was the use of color as a way to support the mood of the scenes. The color and density of the background, along with other visual cues, did as much for the storyline as the musical score does in most movies. I specifically felt that the changes in scene corresponded extremely well with the plot twists and action scenes. Each scene seemed fresh, and I especially enjoyed the stark white snow of the final action scene. Overall, this is a beautiful movie, and although I am generally not a fan of films in this vein, I really enjoyed it.

Things are going pretty well. School is pretty much the same, way too much work. I'm not sure on seminar yet. I may be between jobs or in a new job, so it will depend. If I don't staff seminar, I plan on at least stopping by to see everyone.
