Congratulations, Director Lee

Yesterday I was very happy learning from online news that Director Lee has won the Oscar. I was then moved watching him taking the Oscar award from Tom Hanks on TVB Pearl at night.

I am not a fan of Director Lee per se, but have been impressed by his works that are always brimmed with warmth, sincerity and gentility. I have watched Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon four times.

When countless Chinese actors and directors around the world are still being stuck in the arena of kung fu and action genres, along with the fundamentalist fallacy of billion-dollar computer animations, Director Lee has had the privilege of stepping into the heartland of Western culture by making genuinely English and American dramas through tireless work. His achievements were also well recognised with a variety of awards worldwide. More importantly, despite all those victories and remarkable achievements, Director Lee seems to be the gentleman as he has always been. He never enchants naive slogans such as "Chinese are not sick men in East Asia". He never criticises the others but concentrates on his own work. He lets his scorecard speak for himself.

It does not really matter whether Director Lee was voted the best in Oscar out of political complications. All those who have watched Director Lee's works should agree with me that Director Lee has long become one of the best filmmakers in the world.

Director Lee, please accept my heartfelt gratitude and congratulations. I look forward to your next film.
