Those Boothers among you who may be familiar with the trajectory of Zhang Yimou's career - from the kitchen-sinky dramatist who gave the world Gong Li to director of sumptuous melo-actioners like Hero (2002) and House of Flying Daggers (2004) - may be interested to see what his current big project is.

I know, right?! I heard about this. Here's hoping the ceremony looks a little something like Ju Dou or Raise the Red Lantern. ;)

Did anyone watch it? We had trouble because of the storm - broadcast kept breaking up - but what we got to see in hi-def was fucking spectacular. Really an amazing sight to behold. I just kept thinking "And if this was in the States, they would've gotten Spielberg to do it." Yuck.
