You cannot kill me. You cannot kill China. Not even a million deaths could crush the soul of China, for the soul of China is eternal. When I die, a million will take my place, and nothing can stop them, neither hunger nor torture nor the firing squad.

We shall live on until the enemy is driven back over scorched land and the armies of decency and liberty are on the march. China’s destiny is victory. It will live because human freedom will not perish. Out of the ashes of ruin and old hatreds, the force of peace will prevail until the world is again sane and beautiful.

This quote is taken from Robert L. McLaughlin and Sally E. Parry’s We’ll Always Have the Movies: American Cinema during World War II because the audio of Lady from Chungking isn’t very clear.

I don’t know what they’re waiting for to make an Anna May Wong biopic with Tang Wei, and Joan Chen as director.


Too much awesomeness into one.

What made it to the list and where it placed? Some of my biggest biases placed lower than expected, and some that I don’t want to be my bias placed high on there~

Head over there and do your thing~

This is the theme for Leehom Wang’s directorial debut Love in Disguise, premiering August Thursday 12th, right on time for the debut of his new album 18 Martial Arts… which I am already pre-ordering (plus, re-packaged Jing Chang’s album xD and other stuff from YesAsia… thankyouverymuch).

I feel the MV spoils the film though, but that’s just me. The song’s good, though.

Lee Hom does everything. He writes his own music, plays like 14 instruments… since he’s American, he learned to speak Mandarin… and Cantonese… and Japanese… and he even speaks French. Etc. Etc.

To make things short, Lee Hom is a pretty awesome musician.

And he’s acted before… not so sure about Moon Child, but Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution is a VERY good project to have on your CV… and now, Love in Disguise is his debut as a director.

call me crazy, but this reminded me of Nodame Cantabile. It’s the music setting. Plus, big points for Joan Chen ;P not tagging this as a trailer yet.

Also, subtitled come from the Official Wang Lee Hom channel. Now they only need to add his videos, so I don’t need to read “Sony BMG doesn’t allow the stream of this video in your region” Argh!

Early YAM 010!

MY85 made me realize that tomorrow is the 13th, so I decided to release this today.

Thanks to Julz, who’s always a diligent writer.
and MY85… and well, Maca who keeps tracks of her films.
