Generally I'm able to handle slow-paced movies pretty well.
The Assassin is a film that lingers for a long time on beautiful shots, over and over and over again, to the point where most of the film is dedicated to it. It's pretty hard to deal with honestly.
Shu Qi is the wonderful as the eponymous character. The action scenes that do take place are great. Unfortunately, it's just not my cup of tea at the end of the day.
