The fight scenes are utterly sublime, often shot to make great use of the width of the screen, and speak to the tremendous wonder and visceral passions that these kinds of stories aroused in artistic souls like Ang Lee.

Often imitated, never equaled, "Crouching Tiger" soars because it showcases culture as much as cutting-edge martial arts. Unfinished business, unspoken passions and unwanted prejudices stand beside fists (and feet) of fury in a lyrical film.

The movie is good, sometimes very good, but I suspect it's a masterpiece only for those who haven't seen all the earlier masterpieces that equal or surpass it.

Lo and behold. An action movie that isn't about 'seize the day' or 'follow your heart' opportunism.

It's a feeling akin to seeing Peter Pan fly for the first time or watching the first light-saber duel in Star Wars.
