I've seen this film five times that I can remember now, and it remains a master of plotting and character. It's fascinating, also, to see how the Chinese directors handle scenes much differently than Scorsese would in his American remake. I'm especially thinking of the rooftop fall and the elevator scene. At times, the film is guilty of an excess of style, but, mostly, I don't care.
