Happy Birthday Maggie Cheung

The Queen
Shout out to the model turned one of the greatest actresses of all time. Even through she has been away from the silver screen for over a decade, her twenty years of work in Hong Kong is legendary. Like most westerners, I first saw Ms. Cheung in Wong Kar-Wai's films most notably In the Mood for Love. As wonderful as she is in Wong's movies, for my money,  her greatest performance is in Stanley Kwan's biopic/documentary hybrid Center Stage where she plays the 1930's Shanghai actress Ruan Ling-yu  as well as herself.
