Art comes in many guises, for many reasons.
27 May 2001 | by (Newington, CT) – See all my reviews

If this is merely a commercial for BMW, it is one of the best commercials ever made. Though a BMW car plays a prominent role in the story and there are a only a few lines of dialogue, it is a complete story that would fit comfortably in any good modern action film. If this is a short film as much as it is a commercial, then it is as good or better than many shorts I've seen. There are also a few funny moments as well, and they help propel the story. Those who follow Ang Lee's film career will also find the last scene very amusing.
