    1. The Emperor and the Assassin - B+
    *2. Ten Minutes Older: The Trumpet (2002) (segment "100 Flowers Hidden Deep") - B+
    3. Yellow Earth - B (considered one of the masterpieces of Chinese cinema, I wouldn't put it on that level personally, but does have some truly amazing imagery)
    4. Farewell My Concubine - C+ (Saw this as I was just dipping my toe into foreign cinema 7-8 years ago. Should probably revisit)
    5. Temptress Moon - C (ditto, then again, I also saw Yimou's key films in this period and was immediately taken by them.)
