  • It is with gravity and levity and incomparable grace that Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon -- by light years the best movie of 2000.

  • Transcends its origins and becomes one of a kind. It's glorious, unashamed escapism and surprisingly touching at the same time. show more

  • Ang Lee, a world-class director working at the top of his elegant form, has done something thrilling. For all the leaping action, it's the film's spirit that soars.
