Hong Kong director Wong Kar-Wai takes another crack at his mostly misunderstood new wave samurai film from 1994. Jacky Cheung, Leslie Cheung and Maggie Cheung (no relation) star in this ultra-stylized story of a brokenhearted hit man who lives in a desert and uses skilled swordsmen to carry out his contract killings. Wong's editorial tinkering (five or so minutes worth of cuts) attempts to alter what was already a radical condensation of Louis Cha's classic wuxia novel The Eagle-Shooting Heroes. But it's still a gorgeous film and deserves a second look.See also:Notable martial arts titles from the Netflix Watch Instantly world by Devin D. O’Leary (07/10/2011). 93 minutes R.
