Don't try this at home, heh heh

I was tickled when I read that the Asian Times had issued this marital precaution:

Chinese doctors have warned moviegoers not to try some of the more ambitious sexual positions featured in the uncut version of the Ang Lee film "Lust, Caution." Most of the sexual maneuvers in "Lust, Caution" are in abnormal body positions, said Yu Zao, a deputy director at a women's hospital in southern Guangdong province. "Only women with comparatively flexible bodies that have gymnastics or yoga experience are able to perform them."
Oh really? They looked pretty normal to me. Hmmm.

If you haven't seen Lust, Caution this "report" will likely entice you to rush right out and do just that. Unless of course, you're offended by full frontal nudity, explicit scenes of sexual intercourse or hot, steamy, passionate film-making.

This is a powerful movie. It's set in WWII-era Shanghai, not a great time for the Chinese. They've been overrun with Japanese and they're fighting for their freedom. This movie has love, sex, intrigue, guns, sex, great acting, believable characters, great costumes, sex.

I love Ang Lee: Eat Drink Man Woman; Brokeback Mountain; Sense and Sensibility; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. I suspect actors love him too, they do such a fabulous job for him and seem willing to do just about anything on screen. Amazing.
