Default Re: Rate the last movie you watched.

In an interview on the DVD, Ang Lee talks about how sex is an overused medium to get a physical reaction out of the audience, while food is an underused medium for the same purpose. So in this movie he sets out to help counteract this movement by setting out scene after scene of drool-worthy food porn. Seriously, just thinking about the food makes me so hungry. And since food and dining is such a social aspect in Chinese culture it made for an interesting focus point to set this family comedy/drama around. Definitely got a very Woody Allen feel to the movie especially in the final act and would recommend this movie to any of his fans. Ang Lee needs to do more asian-centric movies.
