New Review - Alexandre Desplat's "Lust, Caution"

While waiting a few hours for my plane in Detroit, I managed to finish my latest review and get it posted. Ang Lee's Lust, Caution (Sie Ji) is already generating controversy for its explicit sex scenes and its designation as originating in Taiwan, China, a sticky political situation to be sure. In my book, the more interesting controversy is how similar Alexandre Desplat's score for the movie sounds to his excellent The Painted Veil from last year. A bit less caution and a bit more daring on Desplat's part would have made this a more satisfying score.
