RED CLIFF is a Chinese historical epic about an early 3rd-century war directed by John Woo, and is the most expensive film in China's history. Just about everything about the film is impressive, the cinematography, the scope, the story, the acting, the sound design and the music all come together for one of the most impressive films of the year. Unlike most of the other two and a half-hour films I complained about this year, this film was well-paced and kept me involved throughout. If you are at all a fan of Asian cinema, I highly recommend the film.
