Culture Notes: Notes on desert island films


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Saturday, January 26, 2008 2:39 PM (Eastern)

Heroic Trio (1993)...I saw on one of the Turner stations, TBS or TNT, late one evening. They aired an amazing total of three Michelle Yeoh movies that night, one after the next. I believe it was Heroic Trio, Heroic Trio 2, and Wing Chun.

I was entranced by the first two...by the time Wing Chun rolled around, it was extremely late and I was falling asleep. The Heroic Trio movies are a bit like Jackie Chan's Hong Kong movies, largely action with some comedy. If you like Jackie Chan, you must get hold of Heroic Trio. This is just a trailer, and captures but a smidgen of what the movie's all about.


Heroic Trio Trailer (1993)


Akira Kurosawa's Dreams (1990) is perhaps an obvious choice: it's long and sumptuously made. Dreams consists of eight individual dreams, which capture the edges of childhood, environmental concerns, post-War Japan, Van Gogh's art...there's a lot going on here.


The Peach Orchard Pt.1


A Taxing Woman (1987)...unfortunately, the only clip on Youtube is a mishmash of promotional films for various Japanese movies. I did find a trailer here: A Taxing Woman (1987).

What made A Taxing Woman outstanding...it was perhaps the first movie I saw portraying a professional woman in a wholly non-negative way. The trailer implies the film centers around the relationship of the tax inspector and the tax cheat, but I didn't see it that way. I had to laugh though..."He has a yen for her, but he won't tell her where it's hidden."
