  • Chelsea's rating of the film Viva Erotica

    funny, dark, ridiculous... a parody of the hk film industry that turns into more of a feel-good comedy towards the end. i put off watching this bc i couldn't bear to see leslie play a self-loathing failed director, but ofc he pulled it off (a little too) well. his scenes w karen mok pretty much made this movie for me; shu qi also gives a short monologue that almost made me cry. plus there's a jab at wong kar-wai!
