MOVIE:  The Curse of the Golden Flower

NUTSHELL:  In Tang Dynasty China, the royal family is totally insane and they all kill each other in really fabulous clothes during the chrysanthemum festival.

GOOD THINGS:  Really fabulous clothes

BAD THINGS:  Totally insane royal family killing each other

FEATURES:  Chrysanthemum festival, Chow Yun-Fat, Gong Li, poisoned tea, gongs, Chou Jay, Liu Ye, escapes on horseback, face brands, ninja attacks

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  The seated sword fight made my brain feel funny.

NOTABLE:  Come to think of it, if I found out my mother had embroidered 10,000 chrysanthemums, I’d think something was very wrong too.

BEST PART:  When the ninjas (?) appeared, I lost my shit laughing. Really.

BEST LINE:  You must be hiding something important from me!

CROWNS:  2 out of 5
