raise the red lantern

this one is a long time favorite. visually stunning, difficult story. i know the video i included is not subtitled. i actually enjoyed watching it without the words. the space is so exotic to me it seemed appropriate to experience the dialogue as just sound.

and kind of tangential, i found this quote when i was looking for material about the movie. so common sense and timeless.

Only when things are investigated is knowledge extended; only when knowledge is extended are thoughts sincere; only when thoughts are sincere are minds rectified; only when minds are rectified are the characters of persons cultivated; only when character is cultivated are our families regulated; only when families are regulated are states well governed; only when states are well governed is there peace in the world.
