Hero

I went with a friendly group of people to see Hero on Wednesday. What a beautiful movie! The fabrics were beautiful, the leaves were beautiful, the reflections, the water droplets, the hair, the cinematography, the color contrasts, the rockscapes: it was all beautiful.

The plot is slender, and isn't the reason to see it. Indeed, in retrospect, it's somewhat propagandistic, but the plot was really secondary to the visuals. The elegance and beauty of the movie is why it's worth seeing, and, if possible, seeing on a big screen. The action sequences, the reason for the movie's existence, are pretty good too. They're also pretty.

I wish my clothing flowed like Snow's.
