Saturday, June 8, 4:30 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater
Dir. John Woo. 1992, 128 mins. 35mm. In Cantonese with English subtitles. With Chow Yun-fat, Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, Teresa Mo. Bullet ballet master Woo’s last film in Hong Kong before departing for a long stint in Hollywood both recaps his florid filmmaking accomplishments to date and one-ups the earlier pyrotechnics. He reunites here with favorite star Chow Yun-fat, playing the do-or-die, clarinet-tooting detective “Tequila,” working uneasily with undercover cop partner Tony Leung to bring down the triads. The thrills start in a tea house run-and-gun featuring a classic coup-de-grace scene, and end at a hospital maternity ward—the mother of all shootouts.
