• An Amorous Woman Of Tang Dynasty

    Dec 17, 2017

    Somewhat frustrating due to its fractured narrative, yet compelling within its aesthetic and themes, Eddie Fong’s directorial debut remains a unique experiment of its era.

  • Cageman

    Feb 27, 2015

    Jacob Cheung’s celebrated drama is that magical juxtaposition of gritty social commentary and absorbing character study that many lesser directors aspire to replicate.

  • Chicken And Duck Talk

    Feb 28, 2015

    Hui delivers an always watchable and occasionally hilarious production that works on a number of different levels.

  • Clans Of Intrigue

    Mar 1, 2015

    However challenging – and at times frustrating – this swordplay drama is, there’s nonetheless enough reasons to stay watching and endure to the conclusion.

  • Come Drink With Me

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Come Drink With Me’ has convinced me of King Hu’s mastery of film-making and I would certainly consider his work here to be almost equal to the best of Chang Cheh and Liu Chia-Liang.

  • Darkside Of Chinatown

    Mar 5, 2015

    A movie worth seeing if you need bringing down a peg or two, but not recommended for those with a depressive nature.

  • Heroes Shed No Tears

    Mar 24, 2015

    ‘Heroes Shed No Tears’ is the kind of complex swordplay film that was attempted after the demise of the Shaw Brothers movie making empire, but often lacked the skilled control that Chor Yuen offered.

  • Hong Kong 1941

    Mar 25, 2015

    ‘Hong Kong 1941’ is a powerful and moving study of the effects of war on the ordinary person and the strains of such pressure on any friendship.

  • How To Choose A Royal Bride

    Mar 26, 2015

    Some may not like ‘How To Choose A Royal Bride’ because of the episodic nature of the story but this is some fun if rather slight entertainment.

  • Killer Constable

    Apr 12, 2015

    ‘Killer Constable’ could have been a genre film with a heart as well as a brain; as it is, this is a good, but not great kung fu film in both action and content.
