T+L Reports: Reel World

Want to see the world?Step into a cinema this month. Old West, New Romance In Brokeback Mountain, director Ang Lee sets an epic tale of the love between two cowboys against Wyoming's crystalline peaks and big sky—and the vicissitudes of a West that changed radically between the 1960's and 80's. London Whodunit Woody Allen crosses the pond for Match Point, trading New York neuroses for London upper-crust niceties. But his real subject is the city, as much a mecca for high culture and ruthless ambition as Gotham itself. Literary Paris Caché revolves around a Parisian family undone by threats from a mysterious source. The thriller presents the city's bourgeois arrondissements as haunted by the immigrant neighborhoods that surround them. Shanghai Decadence Merchant Ivory's The White Countess conjures the sumptuous, sordid world of a 1936 émigré community hidden in the shadow of the Bund. Kyoto Sublime Rob Marshall's adaptation of Arthur Golden's Memoirs of a Geisha casts Ziyi Zhang as a young concubine navigating the political worlds of Kyoto's Gion district on the eve of World War II. —LESLIE CAMHI
