Ang Lee's Varied Repertoire

The story of two sisters who are torn between marrying for love (sensibility) or money and position (sense) and how their choices don't exactly turn out the way they thought and hoped. A stunning and lavish adaptation of Jane Austen's book by Emma Thompson, who also starred. They take more than a few liberties with the source material but the result is one of the best movies ever made. This is my favourite Ang Lee movie.

A spy thriller with it's share of some dark erotica topped with a punch you in the gut ending. Could have been shorter but that that doesn't detract from the overall excellence of the movie. Brilliant acting from the lead actress and that's really understating it.

The Ice Storm (2018)
The Ice Storm is a metaphor for a night when passions erupt and conflict like weather. As storms do, they destroy some things while other are miraculously spared and they reveal new ground among the destruction. Ang Lee's second best English language movie to date.

One of Ang Lee's earliest English language movies, this is a nice mix of comedy and drama. The central characters are a gay Chinese-American man, his live-in lover and his wife from a marriage of convenience. That's complicated enough without throwing the parents into this mix.

Ang Lee's most feted movie to date, I still haven't seen it, maybe I should.
People who added this item 3084 Average listal rating (2029 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.8
A conventional Chinese martial arts drama, complete with great action and a convoluted plot. Ang Lee leaves his touch in the form of great character development and emotional depth.

The story of a chef in Taipei and his four daughters who still live with him. The story traces their discoveries and disappointments in love and life in general. It's a story of how everyone's lives go through cycles of renewal. This is where Ang Lee is at his best - exploring complicated relationship dynamics.

Hulk (2003)
Ang Lee's attempt at a Hollywood action movie came a cropper both commercially and critically. This is his worst reviewed movie to date and I have no plans to watch it.
People who added this item 134 Average listal rating (83 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.7
People who added this item 59 Average listal rating (32 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.2
Ang Lee's first movie, a definite must-watch from the looks of it.
People who added this item 69 Average listal rating (36 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.9
Chosen (2001)
People who added this item 470 Average listal rating (263 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.7
Marketed as a comedy, but a comedy it's really not. Instead, it's a loving look at Woodstock and the spirit of 'free love' that it represented, which Ang Lee is clearly fascinated with.
Abhi's rating:

Ang Lee is one of favourite film makers. This list represents his great versatility and mastery of his craft.
