I believe there is another world waiting for us, Sixsmith. A better world. And I’ll be waiting for you there.
One of the best movies I’ve ever seen. Perfectly paced, perfectly mixed, hauntingly beautiful and with a breathtaking score. Deep and almost mystical, it has a beautiful message. I really don’t understand people who say this movie is horrible. Probably they are too lazy to think and try to understand it. All this ‘whitewashing’ crap they say against this movie, if they only stopped to understand it is necessary for the actors to play all roles, they would shut up.
Watch it with an open mind, try to understand what the characters are saying, don’t judge it by ‘that white guy playing an asian so racist’ that is actually a more racist statement in itself. Judge it by its work, by how beautiful is, by how hopeful the message is. By how we are all the same, and there are no races or countries or time gaps.
This is a master piece.
