    Just saw it yesterday at a very small theater in town. Very long, but not as slowly paced as most people said. VERY interesting story. Beautiful explicit sex scenes. Worth watching just because of all the buzz.

    So were they really boning? Just watched this over the weekend. I can't imagine they would but then I saw the 18 USC age statement in the credits like pornos have.

    Um, I think Ang Lee might have some ego issues. Encouraged off set sex? WTF kind of role preparation is that?!? It REALLY looks like they're farking on screen but I guess you never actually see the Chinaman's ween entering the sideways vag since there's so much hair everywhere...

    Sex and sexuality have become common topics explored in recent Chinese movies. Not surprisingly, they've all been banned in mainland China. Banned, of course, only means not shown in theatres. I'm studying in Shanghai and I was easily able to pick up Lust, Caution; Summer Palace; and Lost in Beijing from the local dvd store.

    I think it's fascinating that so many writers and directors have chosen to include as much sex scenes as possible. For the other two movies, the directors tried to heavily censor the film, but they were still banned. Ang Lee didnt give a shit, obviously.

    Similar to Lust, Caution, the other two films also reveal a progression of sex and sexuality throughout the film that parallels the characters' evolution and development. You go from a shy, timid, and naive girl to a more aggressive and emotional woman at the end. For a topic that's been so hush hush (but not necessarily taboo) in Chinese society, I think it's great that sex and sexuality are finally explored and shown to a wide audience.

    It wasn't that long ago that people don't even kiss on screen in Chinese movies/shows. :rofl:
