The Forbidden Legend: Sex u0026 Chopsticks 2: Directed by Man Kei Chin. With Hikaru Wakana, Kaera Uehara, Serina Hayakawa, Winnie Leung. Like its predecessor, this no-holds-barred sequel from Hong Kong – a piece of ultra-exploitation adapted from the famed 17th century Chinese novel The Plum in the Golden Vase – attained instant notoriety for layering on graphic violence and sex in copious quantities. Lam Wai-Kin reprises his role as Simon Qing. In the prior installment, Qing had sex with a virginal nun, then bedded a concubine, Lotus (Serina Hayakawa) and conspired with her to rub out her dwarf husband, Wu Da-Lang (Ng Chi-Hung). This time around, Simon ostensibly still has relationships with both of the said women but has regressed into a sex addict with fetishistic leanings. As the story unfurls, he attempts to ravish many more women, including his friend Hua Xizu’s (Tam Kon-Chung) wife Pinky (Kaera Uehara), whose husband he plans to murder while he’s at it. At about the same time, Wu Song (Wu Qing-Zhe), the brother of the murdered Wu Da-Lang, schemes to off Simon. Simon sees it coming but doesn’t count on Wu soliciting the help of ex-sister-in-law Lotus, with whom he once had a torrid affair

“89/100u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCruella is simply put, phenomenal. A beautifully and artistically styled film that sets the perfect mood for the dark and cynical title character, the film just feels rebellious and makes you want to root for a true villain and horrific person. Emma Stone shows once again why she is so highly praised in the film community alongside a great performance from Emma Thompson who inserts her greatness in acting throughout the films entirety. Director Craig Gillespie has earned all his stripes in the film industry with films like I, Tonya and now Cruella, as his direction never fails to have intricately designed sets, costume designs and music choice. Gillespie truly knows what has to be done to truly fully immerse an audience in a story and environment and shows it off to perfection with this film. There is no doubt for a single second that Cruella is the best of the Disney live-action adaptations to date, and it will likely stay that way for many years to come.”
