If you’re a well-practiced student, you probably have your own system and set of practices for doing that job.

Ang Lee has made a career of always doing something different, so it likely came as no surprise to people after his Jane Austen adaptation, his 70s period family drama, and his western that he then moved straight into a Chinese wuxia film full of magical realism.
