Caution, maybe not...

Ang Lee's Lust, Caution has taken the top prize at this year's Venice Film Festival, just three years after he won the top prize for Brokeback Mountain. Brian de Palma won the best director prize for Redacted, and Todd Haynes' I'm Not There and Abdellatif Kechiche's La Graine et le mulet. Babel co-stars Cate Blanchett and Brad Pitt took the acting prizes for I'm Not There and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, respectively. You can find the rest of the award winners here at IndieWire.

I still think Ang Lee talents and contributions to cinema are minimal at best -- but I'm curious about this new film, if only because it was greeted with boos upon its win. Maybe that means I'll like it.

I'm pretty sure his contributions to cinema as an art-form (and not a political platform) are totally insignificant. He has yet to make a truly great film... and I doubt he ever will.
