The Bride with White Hair (1993)

This is an unbelievable movie, especially to come out of HK. In my original review a year ago, I thought the movie was slightly overrated, but that's because I hadn't seen it for several years. Now that I've watched it again, several things have become clear again.

1) Brigitte Lin, the most beautiful (not hot or sexy, just plain beautiful) woman IMO, has never looked better than in this film. She looks 25, when she was really 40.

2) This is one of the most incredibly weird movies ever. Some of the scenes are really off the wall. Believe me, this is no ordinary wuxia movie. Expect some grotesque stuff (which are cool)

3) It's very special as well, since it is so unique.

4) I would be very surprised if this wasn't rated CAT III. There is a scene where a woman is stripping naked, in addition to the steamy sex scenes between Leslie and Brigitte and the ultraviolent scenes throughout.

All in all, this is one of the really strangely made movies that became a success due to its uniqueness. The cinematography and the flashy camera shots may not be your cup of tea, but I thoroughly enjoyed them.
