Tigers and Dragons

Last Friday, Ang Lee’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” finally premiered Stateside, after much hand-wringing and excitability among most everyone I know. Though I saw it in Singapore back in August, seeing it a second time on Friday reaffirmed to me that it’s the best film anyone is likely to see all year. Here’s hoping that the American moviegoing public will give their stamp of approval the way Americans best know how.
