Program Abstract: "Gong Li is once again the star of a lavish period piece from China's most celebrated director. Li becomes enmeshed in a struggle between vicious, feuding warlords. As the mistress of Shanghai's chief gangster, she doesn't have much say in the matter. Beautiful cinematography, for which this film was nominated for an Academy Award, makes it simply spellbinding. The cause of controversy in China, it offers an unparalleled look at China's enduring power politics." -- FACETS Multimedia
