Curse of the Golden Flower was excellent. But cant agree with House of Flying Daggers to be better than Hero.... House of Flying Daggers was too stretched and melodramatic, and a little less artistic (but the dance scene with the drums was awesome).
Have you watched Warriors of Heaven and Earth? Slightly different sort of story than the above three.
