Actress Gong Li
I'm stoned and watching Gong Li in the movie "The Princess and the Assassin", one of the few movies of hers I have not seen. She makes my heart beat louder, I swear to God.
The feeling she creates in me is somewhat sexual, but so much more than that. It's more like awe.
I will never find her uninteresting.

I've seen her act. Gong Li would have never made it on my show.

Yes, she's mesmerizing. I could not take my eyes off of her while watching Miami Vice and at the time I found Colin Farrell so hot. Go figure!

Fuck you R1, I'm being serious!
Also, I meant "The Emperor and the Assassin."

She is incredible, but I hate that train movie she made - incomprehensible.

She is so HOT in the movies 'Memoirs of a Geisha', 'Eros', 'Hannibal Rising' and in 'Shanghai'. She is also a great actress!

Is she the one on the roof?

R7...i don't know what you mean. :)
Gong Li as a Geisha. Ravishing!

Bai Ling is on the roof - Gong Li is probably the greatest film actress ever to emerge from China and stunning to boot.

She was spellbinding in Wong Kar-Wai's "2046," the sequel to "In The Mood For Love."
She (and Zhang Ziyi)spoke Mandarin in the film, whereas Tony Leung spoke Cantonese, so if you were aware that they were speaking different languages to each other, it was very strange effect. But they all made it work, such is their skill as actors.

Yes Gong Li and Joan Chen are the best Chinese actresses in my opinion and both are rare beauties.

Thank *god* they made "Memoirs of a Geisha" with her and other divas Chinese cinema. Though it might have looked more authentic with Japanese actresses, I can't imagine it would have been nearly as fun to watch.

I enjoyed a lot 'Memoirs of a Geisha'too. It has also an excellent soundtrack.

Yet another "I'm stoned, but..." threads. You 420, "wake and bake" idiots are beyond boring.

R16 you are incomprehensible, phew...

I really hated the film Memoirs of a Geisha - but not because of the great Chinese actresses. Rob Marshall made a big freaking mess, imo.

Joan Chen is the one who does it for me.
|by Anonymous||reply 19||11/27/2012|
Joan is more warm, i can see why she does it for you...:)
I also think that Joan is more moving and gentle that Gong Li, however they are both rare beauties as i said before...

A lot of Asian women look like that.

Gong Li is a fierce presence - I also love Michelle Yeoh - but sh edoe snot cmpare to Gong Li as an artist. Li is like Jessica Lang.

What train movie? Are you talking about 2046? It was the third movie in a trilogy; had you not seen the other two?
|by Anonymous||reply 23||11/27/2012|
Joan Chen is powerful, Gong Li is a fierce, passionate presence as you said and Michelle Yeoh a natural earthy beauty. All these women are memorable.

r23 - This film made no sense to me whatsoever - and I see a lot of Asian cinema.
|by Anonymous||reply 26||11/27/2012|
Yes R26, i have seen that film too and i got as puzzled as you. I didn't like it especially but Gong Li was very beautiful in that movie as well.
|by Anonymous||reply 27||11/27/2012|
R26, have you seen 'Eros'? Gong Li plays a very sexy part in that particular one.
|by Anonymous||reply 28||11/27/2012|
The real beauties are the actresses who played Hatsimomo in Memoirs and the other one who played the singing opera wife in Raise The Red Lanterns. Sorry, but Li comes across as a peasant farmer. Sure, she's fine but not breathtaking like those other gals.

Oops, sorry, I was thinking of the top star in Memoirs of a Geisha. Gong Li, she's the fucking bomb. So very sorry. Forgive me.

She should get a talk show, call it... hmm... THE GONG Show
|by Anonymous||reply 31||11/27/2012|
If you put her on screen in the same shot as Ryan Gosling fucking Joseph Gordon Levitt's brains out, I think Gong Li would still hold my attention. Good example of having "it".
|by Anonymous||reply 33||11/27/2012|
You made me laugh R16, because I don't disagree with you, but I still say Gong Li is special. I don't need to be high to see that, honestly.

Julie Chen is a ravishing beauty and a great talent.

She was to die for gorgeous in "Raise the Red Lantern" which is also a pretty good flick.

Yeah that was a good one, R36. I got all Gong Li DVDs from Netflix today, so I 'm going to do a marathon this weekend.

Thanks for that bit of info R12. I never knew that! (It's info like this that makes DL worth coming to.) It'll make 2046 more interesting if ever I get a chance to see the movie again.
Anyway, I always thought Gong Li was at her best in Zhang Yimou's fabulous films - maybe with the exception of the last two. Her performance in To Live is truly sublime.

In 'Hannibal Rising' she is also very seductive.

I love Gong Li in The Story of Qui Ju .
This is a very unique sort of film. I love the way the story is told visually. Li gives an extraordinary performance - it's not the least bit glamorous - her looks are incidental.

Li Gong is the new Gong Li.

She was so glamorous and Garbo-esque in "Miami Vice."

She has a very sensual presence. And don't forget Farewell my Concubine, great film.
|by Anonymous||reply 44||11/28/2012|
In western films she is cast for her beauty and object value. In Chinese films she is cast as an actress telling a story.

I haven't seen yet the ' Curse of the Golden Flower'. Is it good or it lacks a good scenario?

Make a thread for JOAN CHEN bitches. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Yes, Gong Li is beautiful. You can show gorgeous pictures of her for days though and it wouldn't explain her tremendous appeal to me. It is the force of her personality that makes her so special, not her looks.
|by Anonymous||reply 53||11/28/2012|
She reminds me of young Streep in a way. Fierce like in Manhattan - before Meryl wanted us to love her.

Why did she leave "The View?" It was better with her than it is with Hassleback.
