Ang Lee by Ellen Cheshire [in Push > for NAATA]
Part of the PocketEssentials series out the U.K., Ang Lee is one of the latest available additions to an eclectic mix of film-related titles. While it reads a bit like a glorified student project, it’s a solid introduction to the very private filmmaker and his films thus far – from his NYU MFA shorts to his breakout Wedding Banquet to his crossover hit Sense and Sensibility to his mega blockbuster Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It even includes a couple of pages on the Latin American remake of Lee’s Eat Drink Man Woman, 2001’s Tortilla Soup, starring Hector Elizondo and Raquel Welch (!). Go figure.
