The first eight minutes of The Proposition
- "Set against the harsh and unforgiving landscape of the 1880s Australian
outback, 'The Proposition' is a visually stunning tale of loyalty, revenge and
the quest for justice in a lawless land. Charlie Burns (Guy Pearce) is a
renegade. Along with his two brothers, Arthur (Danny Huston) and Mikey
(Richard Wilson), he is wanted for murder. When Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone)
captures Charlie and Mikey, he offers Charlie a proposition in an attempt to
end the brutality that surrounds them -- the only way to save Mikey from the
noose is for Charlie to track down and kill Arthur, his psychotic older
brother. An impossible moral dilemma leads to a murderous climax."

A Chinese Torture Chamber Story (1995)
"Mun ching sap daai huk ying" is a classic Hong Kong Category 3 film
featuring a former Miss Asia, Yvonne Yung Hung. She studied dance as a child,
only to injure her back. She moved on to a successful modeling career, then
won the Miss Asia pageant, then in 1993 decided to try Category 3 films, an
unpopular decision with her upscale parents. She has gone on to many roles in
both Category 3 and mainstream films, as well as a recording career. A Chinese
Torture Chamber Story is the film that catapulted her to stardom because her
ability to portray a victim made her perfectly suited for this role.
The films opens with voice-over, describing the torture and punishment that
were a part of the Quing dynasty court procedure, where they tortured
confessions out of the accused, and then dispatched them in inventive ways.
The narration is played seriously and, I am told, is hilarious to those who
speak Cantonese. The entire film is a send-up of Qing dynasty court procedure,
Taoist sexual practices and Confucian moralizing. Cut to a courtroom, where
Little Cabbage (Yung Hung) is accused of murdering her husband and committing
incest with Young Scholar, a wealthy prince. The facts of the case are that
someone prescribed an aphrodisiac for her husband, who already had an enormous
cock, and it exploded, killing him. More about that later.
The judge decides to loosen her tongue before questioning, and commands his
men to "beat her ass 20 times," which they do gleefully right in the
courtroom. She still claims she is being framed, and is innocent of both
murder and adultery. The young scholar also proclaims his innocence. Little by
little, in flashback sequences, interspersed with courtroom torture, we learn
the story. The young scholar is married to over-sexed Ching Mai, and requires
inventive marital aids to satisfy her. He is attracted to Little Cabbage's
small feet, and brings her into his household. When her parents are killed by
robbers, he takes responsibility for her, and wisher to marry her as a
concubine. She asks that he wait for her one year of filial piety (mourning)
to pass before taking her. Meanwhile, the wife is not thrilled at her
presence, even less so when Little Cabbage spies on her having sex with the
Ching Mai waits until The Young Scholar is away on business, and marries
Little Cabbage off to a poor man with a gargantuan penis, thinking that he
will kill her with it. Afraid of him, Little Cabbage cowers on their wedding
night, until he realizes that intercourse is probably not possible given his
size, and we have a tender homage to the pottery wheel scene in Ghost,
complete with Unchained Melody playing on traditional Chinese Instruments,
while she masturbates him. Meanwhile, the young scholar is having adventures
on his own, in the persons of two "Sex Fu" masters, our old hero Elvis Tsui
and Julie Lee Wah-yuet, who fly through the air having sex, much like the
fight scenes in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Elvis finally satisfies her
with a combination of "Invincible Mouth," "Oral Attack," "Invincible Wheel"
and "Wonder Screw."
The two befriend the young scholar, a friendship that later helps his
sister save him and Little Cabbage. The judge's son is not yet through with
his dirty work. He decides to become invisible, and then screw Little Cabbage.
When he tries, her husband defends her honor against the invisible attacker,
which includes slipping between the two and getting a mouthful for his
trouble. Thus Little Cabbage, who is accused of adultery, is still a virgin.
The judge, in trying to protect his son, employs everything he can think of to
extract confessions, including finger torture, pulling out of fingernails,
bamboo under the fingernails, and many more.
This film has a little less in the way of nudity than many of the Category
3 films, but includes ,. ,
IMDb readers say 6.0, and, as the film had a limited US release, there are
a few reviews linked, all positive. It is my understanding that the dialogue
is superb in the original Cantonese. The subtitles can't come close to giving
us that experience, but they do add their own unique humor, such as a women
shouting at the height of passion, "It is so comfortable, it is so
comfortable." Remember that this is a comedy, lest you take the torture, which
will make you wince, too seriously. If you are going to see one Hong Kong
Category 3 film, this is a very good choice.

Pat's comments in yellow...
The new painting of Bill Clinton at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery
was not greeted warmly. Unlike other dignified presidential poses, it shows
Clinton standing in profile, his jacket pulled back and his left hand on his
hip, looking toward viewers with an odd half-scowl. Some people said he looks
like a guy hitting on women at a nightclub. And the artist left off his wedding
ring. The curator said Clinton appears "intense" and has a "warm gaze" as if to
"greet an unseen visitor." But an anonymous former Clinton aide told the New
York Post, "I don't get the whole hands-on-the-hip thing. I don't know what it's
supposed to convey."

Pinup model Cindy Margolis, who billed herself as the "most downloaded woman" on

She said she always refused because "in the past, it would have been for
gratuitous reasons," but at 40, it's empowering. She said, "Thank goodness for
'Desperate Housewives.' You're not dead just because you are married and have
children...It will be fun to go up against the 20-year-olds and show them that
they don't have anything on me."
