You Never Know Department
14 January 2007 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

I picked up the wife from work last night and sat back to check out Face. Tsotsi was making it's premiere at 10 pm, so I could change if it proved boring. The description was the 2004 Korean horror film, but the movie that came on was the 2002 Chinese Face, starring Ling Bai. Needless to say, I never switched as the story of three generations of Chinese women in Queens was well worth the lost sleep. I'll just have to see Tsotsi later. Definitely recommend this one. I noticed that it was beaten at Sundance by Personal Velocity: Three Portraits, starring the incomparable Kyra Sedgwick. I cannot get enough of her in The Closer, and she was brilliant in The Woodsman.
