Ang Lee

Ang Lee is considered one of the best directors working in film today. He has received enormous acclaim for such diverse films as the action adventureCrouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, the gay cowboy love story Brokeback Mountain and the gorgeous, NC-17 thriller Lust, Caution.
  1. Crouching Tiger Resources

Lust, Caution
Ang Lee's erotic espionage thriller Lust, Caution tells the story of a young woman (Tang Wei) in Japanese occupied Shanghai during world war two who must lure a war collaborator (Tony Leung) to his assignation.

Brokeback Mountain
Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain is an epic love story about gay cowboys and that, in itself, is something. Otherwise, the film, adapted from an Annie Proulx short story, is not one to get particularly excited over. Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Williams star.
