Did You Know?
(On Mean Streets) I saw this film before I directed my first movie. Even after I directed my first movie, I didn't have much confidence. I must confess, I think I started a little too young. I should have learned more. I started with some kung-fu movies and comedies. After I watched Mean Streets, it made me feel ashamed-"Why don't I make a movie like that? Tell a true story?"
Was offered to direct Brandon Lee in "Rapid Fire"(1992) but the producers were highly against it as they wanted a martial arts film and not the stylized films that Woo made.
Since making films in the U.S., Woo has started to use doves as a symbol for peace in his films. They are often pictured flying away as the shooting begins.
