Release year: 1987
Director: Bernardo Bertolucci


Rating: 4.5/5

Watched: May 05, 2013

The treatment of life as an emperor of China from toddler age to the middle years until the name of the movie becomes real with the rise of the Communist Republic. The way it showed the emperor being an emperor was pretty nice and different.

That spy girl was pretty spunky cool. Thought it'd be interesting if she were in a show or movie of a group of talented crazy people going on adventures.

"Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it."
— Mark Twain


“I divide my officers into four classes; the clever, the lazy, the industrious, and the stupid. Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever and industrious are fitted for the highest staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy however is for the very highest command; he has the temperament and nerves to deal with all situations. But whoever is stupid and industrious is a menace and must be removed immediately!”
— General Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord
