Variety: If You Are the One 2

A new film from one of the bad boys of Chinese cinema, Jiang Wen -- a scathing satire on power, greed and corruption -- has critics cheering and movie-goers queuing up to make it a box office hit.
The leading Southern Daily newspaper praised Jiang and said the film's message would not be lost in a society increasingly divided by a gaping rich-poor income gap.
Jiang had "exposed and satirised the weaknesses and shortcomings of Chinese society and its people"... "Dressed up in commercial wrappings, he has packaged a work greatly steeped in political meaning." (AFP)

"Lu Yu is the anorexic Chinese Oprah"

She does have a very marked lollipop head look.

Seriously, I think she is. She looked less so a few years ago. Lu Yu's show has aired on the local Chinese TV channels here and she looks positively malnourished.

I posted another picture of her earlier here.
