In Wong Kar Wai's debut English-language feature, the internationally acclaimed director takes his audience on a dramatic journey across the distance between heartbreak and a new beginning. After a rough breakup, Elizabeth sets out on a trip across America, leaving behind a life of memories, a dream, and a soulful new friend, a cafe owner, all to search for something to mend her broken heart. Waitressing her way through the country, Elizabeth befriends others whose yearnings are greater than hers, including a troubled cop, his estranged wife, and a down-on-her luck gambler with a score to settle. Through these individuals, Elizabeth witnesses the true depths of loneliness and emptiness, and begins to understand that her own journey is part of a greater exploration within herself.

Suzhou River

Suzhou River Lowest new price: $11.97
Lowest used price: $4.98
List price: $16.99

Recalling both Vertigo (1958) and Chungking Express (1994), Chinese director Lou Ye spins this riveting tale of obsession and love. The film opens with shots of the Suzhou River, which is clogged with the detritus and pollution of a rapidly expanding Shanghai. Narrated by an unseen freelance videographer, the film focuses on motorcycle courier Mardar (Jia Hongsheng), who specializes in black marketeering and is asked by a shady alcohol smuggler to shuttle his young attractive daughter Moudan (Zhou Xun) to her Auntie's every day while the thug entertains his latest sexual conquest. Though at first the youth resists his precocious passenger's advances, the two soon fall for one another. In spite of this, Mardar reluctantly agrees with a group of sleazy associates to a scheme to kidnap Moudan and extract a ransom from her father. When Moudan learns of Mardar's betrayal, she runs to throw herself into the Suzhou river -- apparently to her death -- cursing Mardar and saying that she will come back as a mermaid and haunt him. A few years later, Mardar is released after a stint in prison and returns to Shanghai, where he encounters Meimei (also played by Zhou), a nightclub dancer who performs in an aquarium as a mermaid and who is dating the videographer/narrator. Haunted by his past and unnerved by her resemblance to Moudan, Mardar soon becomes obsessed with Meimei. At first, Meimei brushes off Mardar's advances, until he tells her of his sordid past. Soon, she dumps the videographer in favor of her ardent pursuer, while Moudan and Meimei fuse in Mardar's fragile psychology. This film won the top prize at the Rotterdam Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Transsiberian

Transsiberian Lowest new price: $1.90
Lowest used price: $0.99
List price: $9.99
Brand: FIRST LOOK HOME ENTERTAINMENT

Roy (Woody Harrelson) and Jessie (Emily Mortimer) are the perfect American couple traveling from Beijing to Moscow on the legendary Trans-Siberian Express train. The two strike a bond with another couple, Carlos (Eduardo Noriega) and Abby (Kate Mara), who are not exactly as they appear. Unwittingly, Roy and Jessie are caught in a web of drug trafficking and murderous deceit when all four become targets of ex-KGB detective Grinko's (Ben Kingsley) investigation.

In Transsiberian, a train twisting across the white Siberian landscape becomes a trap for a well-meaning American couple, Roy (Woody Harrelson) and Jessie (Emily Mortimer), who find themselves pursued by a Russian policemen (Ben Kingsley) while on a trip to Moscow. On the train, they befriend a younger couple--but the charming pair hold secrets that draw Roy and Jessie into a frozen nightmare. Transsiberian's snowy setting is both beautiful and eerie, providing an evocative atmosphere that helps carry the viewer through the sometimes bumpy plot. At its core, Transsiberian is about the anxiety of being in a new world--be it a new country or a new phase of your life--and not knowing the rules, the fear of taking the wrong step and falling. The thriller plot is little more than a delivery system for that sensation. But really, all director Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Next Stop Wonderland) needed was Mortimer's limpid face; every tremor that crosses her pale skin reverberates through the camera. Her essential vulnerability first came across in Lovely and Amazing; Anderson makes good use of this rare quality. --Bret Fetzer

Jackie Chan's Project A

Jackie Chan's Project A Lowest new price: $14.99
Lowest used price: $1.60
List price: $9.99
Brand: Buena Vista Home Video

International martial arts megastar Jackie Chan (RUSH HOUR, TWIN DRAGONS, RUMBLE IN THE BRONX) directs and performs all his own death-defying stunts in a hard-hitting and humorous action adventure that's been called one of his very best! Chan rocks the high seas as Dragon Ma, a determined coast guard officer on patrol in late 19th-century Hong Kong. As he battles with a ruthless syndicate in a seemingly never-ending struggle for control of the dangerous waters, you'll be blown away as Jackie literally throws himself into some of the most amazing movie stuntwork ever captured on film! Also starring popular Sammo Hung (TV's MARTIAL LAW), this must-see, adrenaline-pumping adventure delivers all the intense thrills and witty fun that Jackie Chan fans demand!

For people who've discovered Jackie Chan through his American hit Rush Hour and want to learn what his Hong Kong movies are like, Project A is an excellent place to start. Chan plays a sailor in 19th-century Hong Kong; pirates have been terrorizing the seas for months, and all efforts to combat them have been sabotaged by the corrupt chief of police and a criminal gang, who are in cahoots with the pirates. But the plot is hardly the point--a Jackie Chan movie is about astonishingly acrobatic action sequences and breathtaking stunts, and Project A has plenty. Of particular interest is a bicycle chase that is more suspenseful than any car chase you've ever seen. Chan is joined by Sammo Hung (star of TV's Martial Law) as a shifty con man who comes through when the chips are down. Project A also features Yuen Biao, a frequent costar in Chan's movies, who's yet another astounding martial artist. But what separates Jackie Chan movies from other kung fu flicks is his sense of humor; every fight scene is punctuated by something--a clever use of a prop or sudden reversal of your expectations--that will make you bark with laughter. Sometimes it's just so exquisitely choreographed that the entire movie seems to float on a cloud of giddy delight. Purists may object to the movie being dubbed, but given the overall hamminess of the acting, it's not particularly intrusive. Jackie Chan is often compared to the classic silent comedians for his grace and timing--he lives up to it. --Bret Fetzer

So Close to Paradise

So Close to Paradise Lowest new price: $4.50
Lowest used price: $1.97
List price: $7.97
Brand: First RUN Features
Model: 2251369

SO CLOSE TO PARADISE tells the story of two friends, who--like many other Chinese peasants--leave their small country village to seek fortune in the city. Instead of the life they expect to find, Dong Zi and Gao Ping must live together in a shack on the river in the city of Wuhan, where Dong works on the docks while his friend Gao becomes a petty criminal. When a powerful gang boss cheats Gao, he takes his revenge by kidnapping the boss's mistress Ruan Hong, a beautiful, seductive nightclub singer. However, when Gao falls in love with Ruan, his fate is sealed.

Set in the seedy nightclubs and desperate streets of Wuhan, SO CLOSE TO PARADISE uses a classic Hollywood noir blueprint of a gangster's love-triangle but it also references something much deeper. Rather than attempting to glamorize the gangster lifestyle, Wang casts his gaze on the harsh realities of urban life and the limited possibilities for the lower classes of China. Wang's "ability to nimbly filter big questions and political concerns through the lives of society's fringe dwellers--without being didactic--is what makes SO CLOSE TO PARADISE so moving and so timely." (Ernest Hardy, LA Weekly)

Paradise is a long way from the waterfront slums and nightclub dives of Wang Xiaoshuai's restless crime story. Like a modern Chinese take on a classic American film noir, this tale of a small time-criminal on the outskirts of the Wuhan underworld, a beautiful karaoke singer who dreams of pop stardom, and the naïve country boy who watches their destructive romance bristles with doom. Director Wang Xiaoshuai (Beijing Bicycle) is from China's sixth generation of filmmakers, and his agitated style--featuring handheld takes, jump cuts, and vibrant colors that cut through the clutter and the darkness--couldn't be more different from the smooth, formal beauty of fifth-generation greats Zhang Yimou and Chen Kaige. His remove keeps us at arm's length from the characters, but his luscious imagery, grimy glamour, and haunting narration give just a hint of romantic hope in the squalor of the urban jungle. --Sean Axmaker
