Unfortunately, the scenes between the sex and violence, while beautiful, will test your patience.

January 4, 2008
Lee's saucy, sumptuous slow-burner is a complex, elegant seduction, drawing on Hitchcock but putting a singular stamp on a rich spread of spies and sex, repression and sacrifice. Just don't try those moves at home...

A mesmerising study in emotional cruelty.

January 4, 2008
A beautifully rendered, long, drawn-out but ultimately very satisfying story of betrayal and revenge in an uneasy setting of wartime paranoia.

Overwrought and overlong, Ang Lee's Lust, Caution nevertheless has some moments of exquisite beauty and a potentially star-making performance from newcomer Tang Wei.

The drama remains strangely dispassionate. Yet just as strangely, it's never less than entertaining.

Chugs along at such a slow speed it nearly put me to sleep despite its graphic sex scenes... .

Ang Lee has shown that sometimes art has to be bold. Because he presents the sexuality as graphically as he does, Lust, Caution becomes much richer and more meaningful than it would have been otherwise.

A downer with no redeeming entertainment value outside of its hot sex scenes.
Full Review | Original Score: C

What is graphic and raw and adult and disturbing are the roiling, dangerous emotions underlying the hot, sweaty, etc sex...

Lust, Caution asks some patience of us, but our patience pays off.
November 4, 2007
This Juliet if not Romeo steamy Shanghai erotic spy thriller touching on a torturer's tainted libido, crosses party lines to contemplate sexual betrayal laced with toxic unrequited desire.
November 3, 2007
In a film where casting is a vital component in the edgy equation, Leung and Tang make a picturesque and dramatically compelling couple.
October 26, 2007
While some will feel his previous works better illustrate his gift of film, Lust, Caution creates an unmatched statement of cinematic wisdom all its own.

The spy-game maneuverings provide some dramatic heft.

Well crafted and painful to watch. Worth paying Matinee price if you can shake the discomfort off.

unfurls at the same pace as a doomed lotus blossom. And just as beautifully with the year's most sensuous cinematography

Ang Lee's latest, Lust, Caution is a sluggish disappointment with a catchy title.
