I call Mr. Bernardo Bertolluci's The Last Emperor the most detailed and well-filmed mainstream cinema i have ever seen. His attention to detail and his sense of space is so much of an eye candy. I admire every bit of detail it exudes. The frames are oh so wonderful.
His approach to history is purposeful, declarative and enigmatic. He brought China to my eyes with a whole new vision. It is masterful art of cinema.
