Ashes of Time Redux (2008)

Directed by Kar Wai Wong

Cast: Brigitte Lin, Leslie Cheung, Maggie Cheung, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Jacky Cheung, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Li Bai, Carina Lau, Charlie Yeung

Hong Kong director Wong Kar-Wai takes another crack at his mostly misunderstood new wave martial arts 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. HD Available.

Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Antique Meiji Foot Warmer/Incenser ($2,500)

For the Asian antiques collector with cold, stinky feet and money to burn, may we suggest this gold-accented combination incense burner / foot warmer from Japan’s Meiji era?

More than 100 years old, this rare and unique bronze, silver, and gold foot warmer was made after the defeat of the Shogunate, during the reign of Japan’s Emperor, (Mutsuhito) Meiji (1868 - 1912). Deeply patina’d bronze brazier with a 950 silver dragon motif lid accented by karat gold and black enamel eyes. Most certainly made for someone of the ruling class. Exactly 8”x 8”x 8”. Asking $2,500.00.
