Eileen Chang took 40 years to keep revising this story. It is never only "a fast, tawdry, and voluptuous pulp." You must be a too busy film critics.

I think you are mistaken about what the film wants us to feel. You seem to misunderstand the film and the cultural context.

viewed in a perspective of thriller, you can never get into the essence of the film.
