Wait -- the same guy who made 1995's "Sense and Sensibility" also made "Hulk" ('03), "Brokeback Mountain" ('04), "Life of Pi" ('12) and "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" ('00)?!

Director Ang Lee's career has been a series of surprises and experiments but, through it all, he's maintained a focus on philosophy over genre: exploring our place in the world through a perspective shaped by both Eastern and Western ideas.

In this episode, Mike and Brian talk transcendence and the art of swordplay, as well as decide whether or not to keep or kick "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" from the year's top five.
