Curse of the Golden Flower, another Tang Dynasty classic, this time from master film maker Zhang Yimou of Jou Do and Raise the Red Lantern fame. Fabulous eye-candy epic featuring great performances from the incomparable Gong Li and Chow Yun Fat. The best I've seen since House of the Flying Daggers, also a must see for those into Shakespearian plots and intrigues.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
