Ashes of Time Redux

By spcnet.tv on September 13th, 2008 | Hong Kong Movies

Since its release in 1994, Wong Kar Wai’s “Ashes of Time” has received mixed reviews.  Many critics praised it for its artistic re-interpretation of Jin Yong’s characters that appear in his “Eagle-Shooting Heroes” novel, beautiful landscape photography by Christopher Doyle, and melancholy atmosphere.  The haunting soundtrack for this film is also very memorable and fits the mood of the film well.  Not to mention, the late Leslie Cheung starred in the film alongside Tony Leung and with an array of actors such as Tony Leung Kar Fai, Carina Lau, Bridgette Lin, and Maggie Cheung.

Now the movie is in “redux” mode and re-released in a digitally cleaned up version.  It is said that this is an abridged version too.
