The Flower of My Secret
This florid film comes across like Almodóvar riffing on Fassbinder's The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant and Douglas Sirk's (Imitation of Life). The story about a writer who is dissatisfied with her life marks the return of Almodovar's dark, delicious humor.

Raise the Red Lantern
Zhang's film is a biting examination of sexual politics, mandarin-style. Also stunningly gorgeous to look at, this melodrama transcends all borders and eras to speak to the ages.

The Killer
This is the film that made John Woo and Chow Yun-Fat household names within action-crazed American households. Elements of conventional melodrama and criminal double-crosses blend in this story about a hitman conducting one last job to earn the money to restore the eyesight of a woman he had previously blinded.
"...noticed, the plot starts off as a retelling of Douglas Sirk's Magnificent Obsession with a young nightclub singer, Jenny..."

Written on the Wind
This wild love story among the pillars of a rich Texas oil family features a drunken, paranoid playboy (Stack, in maybe his very best performance), the woman who loves him (Bacall), the man who loves her (Hudson), and the half-sister (Malone) who loves him. This oil-family story is way, way east of Eden.

Ali: Fear Eats the Soul
Fassbinder's grimy Berliner sensibility coats the bare bones of Sirk's original tale in a slick sheen of weary cynicism and pits true love against societal mores in a battle to the bitter end.
