In celebration of Chinese New Year, I’m watching this title featuring three shorter films:
(Paired with ginger beef and hot and sour soup!)
A woman eats fetuses supplied by a witch doctor (Bai Ling) to look young and beautiful. Disturbing yet delicious.
A disgruntled movie extra tortures a director and his wife in a strange and glamorous way, but the film confuses us at the end.
Takashi Miike’s film about twin contortionists at a circus takes us on a delicate and sad journey but leaves us with an unintentionally comedic imagine.
I am a huge fan of films comprised of several films and I enjoyed all of these fairly equally. They were each very unique but also very interesting and well-timed drama-horrors. I am excited to see the full-length feature version of Dumplings.
