Well, pretty close, anyway. After an extended hiatus, the much-loved CultureSpace is back with some terrific musings on music and movies. Here’s his thoughtful, slightly contrary meditation on Zhang Yimou’s Hero. He tosses aside the rhetoric about the movie’s “balletic” overtones, which most other writers (myself included) latched on to, in favor of a critique more concerned with the movie’s musicality and richness of tone. I’m not sure I’d dismiss the comparisons to dance altogether, and later this week I’ll probably post my dashed-off comments on the movie and on its companion piece, House of Flying Daggers. Until then, here’s something brilliant to read.
