Nie yin niang – The Assassin 

Lives up to all the reports of looking beautiful.

And all the reports of sparse/incomprehensible plot.

On balance, I was OK with the latter because of the former while I was watching it, but don’t feel like I could sit through it again.

The slower pace allows time for some beautiful cinematography, so the best thing is just to relax into it and let it wash over you.
