The new Senses of Cinema is online, and with it my CTEQ annotation (ie review) of Tsui Hark’s peppy, shrill, fun SHANGHAI BLUES. Here. This is one I volunteered for under a late-night misconception that I’d actually seen the film — turns out I’d seen the superior PEKING OPERA BLUES. Still, it was the work of an instant with me to track down a copy of the movie, see it, and form some kind of semi-coherent response. Fun, too.

Gotta do something about that self-pitying bio though.
