Released in 2000, the film was am overwhelming critical and commercial success that was nominated for 10 Academy Awards - at the time, the most nominations ever received for a non-English-language film. Featuring stunning martial arts choreography by Yuen Wo Ping (THE MATRIX), gorgeous cinematography, action, romance, adventure, and knockout performances from Chow-Yun Fat, Michelle Yeoh, and Ziyi Zhang.
"A lot of time has passed since “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” first stormed festivals, theaters and the gates of Hollywood itself in 2000. Returning to the big screen in a digital 4K restoration, the movie has lost none of its dreamy beauty or hypnotic power, and that power still builds as assuredly and methodically as ever." (LA Times)
"Watching Michelle Yeoh in both [EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE] films, particularly within the context of the awards season campaign she’s currently undergoing, is to see two bookends to the paradox that is her career. “Crouching Tiger” boasted great performances, but it was Yeoh who shined the brightest. And yet, her current “Everything Everywhere” victory lap has correctly framed her as a revered global star who only now has been allowed to fully extend her limbs." (New York Times)
