As a Chinese-American, I must disagree with Sheila Benson's review of "Dark Night," one of the best and most important Chinese movies to play in American theaters (" 'Dark Night' Tends to Be a Sleepy One," June 11).
The movie accurately reveals the reality of changing relationships among the new wealthy class in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Though many people may not like to face these truths, the film courageously and artistically presents them as they really are.
It's rare that Americans ever have the opportunity to experience a film that depicts the struggle between traditional Chinese morals and the more liberated attitudes of modern times--the new Chinese experience.
It's a shame that Benson decided to belabor such trivial, silly and petty points as the fact that a male character had put on his bikini underwear after a love interlude.
