Mahjong ★★

Yang is too talented to engage in a total misfire, but Mahjong never had me fully involved. Perhaps it was the character writing, or the plotting, or the themes, but I'll chalk it up to the awful transfer I watched with really poor subtitles that often missed full sentences of dialogue. Willing to revisit whenever someone puts out a proper Blu-ray scan, hopefully Criterion will pick this and A Confucian Confusion up some day in the future!
