Our take

For his most ambitious project to date, Wong Kar Wai brought his languid rhythms and poetic modes of action to the wuxia genre. With ravishing cinematography by Christopher Doyle and an all-star cast of Hong Kong greats, this Redux cut from 2008 re-established the film as a martial-arts classic.
