    Default Let the Bullets Fly (让子弹飞)

    Really enjoyed this film, with wonderful performances by Jiang Wen, Chow Yun-fat, and Ge You (and the supporting cast as well).

    I've read there's a political subtext which is expressed through visual/spoken jokes, but which I wasn't able to catch, not being a native speaker/familiar with Mainland politics. Does anyone know of a good article discussing them, or want to try explaining what they were?

    I saw a lot of discussions in Chinese, but nothing in English. Maybe you should check IMDb.
    Yes, this movie would be much more funny if you understand Chinese. What a pity.
    Strange nobody's enjoying it in this forum.

    Unfortunately I'm in a mindless entertainment mode when it comes to movies these days, so I didn't get any of the political undertones in here I just watched it for the bandit shoot-outs.
