Friday night, I was at the New York Film Festival for the screening of the martial arts film "The Assassin".
The director, Hou Hsiao-hsien won the Best Director Award at this year's Cannes Film Festival for this movie.
And I could certainly see why.
It's absolutely beautiful.
So, many scenes are breathtaking.
The costumes, dance & fight scenes and music are all terrific.
Following the screening, the director Hou Hsiao-hsien and one of he film's co-stars, actress/dancer Fang-Yi Sheu participated in a discussion and Q&A session with the audience.
