  4. goulton green's rating of the film Ju Dou

    Breath taking ode to love. Another beautiful house in YZ movies. Dyed canvases that flog high up in the air and light, beneath the shaded ground house heart.

  6. Wasunan T's rating of the film Ju Dou

  7. Edward Copeland's rating of the film Ju Dou

    The beautful and tough film that first brought Zhang Yimou and Gong Li to the attention of U.S. audiences. http://eddieonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/03/small-village-somewhere-in-china-in.html

  8. J. Pomp's rating of the film Ju Dou

    Treats potentially hammy material with a striking sobriety. Uses colors masterfully- one stunning monochromatic tableau after another

    listen to the pig screaming for its life

  11. captain's rating of the film Ju Dou

    This is a film that needs a Blu-ray release, pronto. It wouldn't be that urgent, but the DVD is laughably bad, especially considering how successful of a filmmaker Zhang is. Regardless, I only take time to complain because of how wonderful Ju Dou was. Zhang is great, and Gong Li once again captivated.

  12. Jerry G's rating of the film Ju Dou

  13. rado's rating of the film Ju Dou

    "Ju Dou" is a miracle of a film that can't be put into words.

  14. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Ju Dou

    From what I've seen so far Ju Dou is my favorite Zhang Yimou film. It's a classic story, and so are the themes, but it's all handled perfectly. And as usual Gong Li is nothing short of stunning. For me though the real star was the Technicolor cinematography which is so rich, sensual, and sumptuous. The dye mill really allowed for lots of great cinematic moments. Sadly the R1 DVD looks like a pirated copy. It sucks.

  15. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film Ju Dou

    Uno de los primeros trabajos de Zhang Yimou, y una de las mejores peliculas de su carrera. Especie de versiòn china de El Cartero llama dos veces, el film muestra las mejores virtudes del cine posterior del director (la solida presencia de Gong Li, deslumbrante sentido visual, dura critica a la condiciòn social de la mujer china, etc.). De lo mejor de los 90.
