@ , any vacay plans for Cannes next May? 😉
All things r hinting on WKW getting The Grandmasters ready for an outing there, and Tony a shot at Prix d’interprétation masculine. Gosh I can’t believe his recognition for In the Mood for Love was in 2000!
And thanks for the heads up for the trailer! It’s glorious!
‘Kung Fu is one stroke horizontal, the other vertical. Wrong; you lie; right, stand. Your take?’
Trailer and Tony r widely praised, he conveyed the air of the modest, mild mannered master, sharp, fierce with his kung fu moves. ‘ His last fist hitting out the title 一代宗師, dominating yet alluring.’ -MingpaoNews
I’ll never be a fan of Donnie Yen’s acting, he’s improved tonnes to serviceable, but still you see the ever presence self-awareness. More posing than digger deeper into the psyche of the character. Tony, of course, convinced me in 1 min of preview Donnie tried passably in a movie long. I’m fine with IpMan, it is what it is, a conventionally good kung fu action blockbuster, but it’s not thought provoking. I’m expecting Grandmasters to give me lots to think about, and this is the least I’m expecting fr WKWxTony.
