After a few weeks of showing a censored version tame enough for the lucrative teen market, the powers that be are finally releasing an R-rated Lust, Caution for the adults and movie connoiseurs. Based on how well the movie performed in Taiwan and Hong Kong, you could say Lust, Caution is the adult Transformers of the year, though maybe somebody at the top misread this as being literally like Transformers in terms of drawing in the adolescent crowd, prompting this misinformed person to apply for an NC-16 rating. I'm not sure if the mature audiences who unwittingly saw the neutered version would pay again to watch the movie, albeit with more Tony Leung nakedness. These disgruntled folks probably got an uncensored copy of Ang Lee's thriller from JB by now. I'm glad I held out for the R-rated version, but then again if the grown-ups and aficionados aren't coming, I dread that I might be sitting alongside patrons of Yangtze theatre next Wednesday. Click here for the schedule, ah pek!
