"Hero" is the saddest and most beautiful thing I've seen in years

Kij and I played hookey (sp?) a couple of days ago -- forgot to post about it. Wow, I can't say how many times I was struck all teary from the gorgeous scenes, the settings, the artistry of the fight sequences, and the harsh beauty of the story itself. Heck, my tear ducts got a bit tired by the end. It plays with narrative in a refreshing way, and builds characters by sort of running around the truth... 'nuff said. Go see it!

I must own this movie when it hits DVD and watch it frequently.
