Movie Moment #97: Curse of the Golden Flower
Thanks so much for the win, czf3! I've never won in this group before, so this is a huge honor for me. Plus making that look was really fun!
Okay, so for this week we are going back in time to ancient China with one of my favorite wuxia* movies ever: Curse of the Golden Flower! It's a beautiful but dark tale of court intrigue during the Tang Dynasty. The story itself is heavy and kinda on the depressing side, but the sets and costumes are GORGEOUS. (It actually got an Oscar nom for Best Costume in 2006.) So you can imagine how psyched I was to finally have a chance to pick this movie! (Plus with Chinese New Year coming up, it's even better!) Have fun ladies, I can't wait to see what you do with this one!
