Ang Lee is happily dogged by controversy

Ang Lee returned to his native Taiwan earlier this month to pick up the best director prize for his new film Lust, Caution at the Golden Horse Awards, regarded by many as the Asian Oscars. Taking the podium to collect the last of seven gongs, he startled the assembled industry executives by ending his acceptance speech with the cry: 'Go Taiwanese film!'

It was a moment of uncharacteristic exuberance from the acclaimed 53-year-old director, a 'shy human being' who left his homeland for America 30 years ago to pursue a career in cinema against the wishes of his disciplinarian parents.
