Ang Lee

Interview

Friday, August 08, 2008

The director's latest film, Lust, Caution, is set in World War II Shanghai, occupied by Japan. As if a Chinese movie by a Taiwanese director wasn’t edgy enough, the film is so erotic it made Ang Lee himself intensely uncomfortable. Kurt talks with Lee and his screenwriter and producer, James Schamus.
