Theres a certain irony to the fact that the Asian action film thats currently being so readily embraced by critics is not from Hong Kong and has not been made by any of the Hong Kong New Wave directors who achieved cult status in the late 80s and early 90s. Instead, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (opening 12/22 at the Hillcrest Cinemas) is the work of Taiwanese director Ang Lee, best known for his wry social comedies The Wedding Banquet and Eat Drink Man Woman.
