The 50th New York Film Festival and Directors Dialogues with Ang Lee

The 50th New York Film Festival started last night with 'The Life of Pi,' Ang Lee's latest film.

I went to the first of the Directors Dialogues  today and listened to Ang Lee talk about his career. I've been a fan since I saw 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' when it came out. He makes the most beautiful movies.

They talked about his variety in film choices: 'Sense and Sensibility,' 'Hulk,' 'Brokeback Mountain,' and 'The Ice Storm.'

Where many directors have a theme, Ang Lee does it all, but each one he does with such beauty. There's a dance of color and expression, a visual feast for the eyes if you ask me and I haven't even seen 'The Life of Pi' yet. The trailers tell me that it will be just as magnificent. The only reason I missed it was because tickets were gone so quickly.

But tomorrow, I got lucky. I am going to see 'Hyde Park on the Hudson' with Bill Murray. Excited!!!

Here are some pictures of Ang Lee from today's talk.
