    This was the first Wong Kar-Wai movie I saw. I’m not sure which version it was, but I was expecting more of a traditional martial arts film and was disappointed when it wasn’t that. The other one I’ve seen is The Grandmaster, which would have been the first film I saw about the famous Ip Man, but it turned out to be more focused on other characters. I suppose these aren’t considered his best films, but I often require a genre “hook” to get into something.

    Are you a big fan of wuxia/martial arts movies? Because Ashes of Time is light years away from any genre conventions, which version did you see?
