I think, Ang Lee's Lust, Caution representing Taiwan is a sure contender for the 2008 Oscar's Best Foreign Language Film as well as in other categories, if we are to consider reviews by some movie critics that the film is able to match the quality of the movie Brokeback Mountain, another Ang Lee's entry in the Academy Awards two years ago.
