Hkiff to host Bruce Lee, Shakespeare screenings

7 February 2016 6:29 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

This year’s Hong Kong International Film Festival (Hkiff) will screen the digitally remastered films of Bruce Lee, as well as a special programme to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

Shakespeare Live In Film will showcase three very different interpretations of Macbeth with Akira Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood (1957), starring Mifune Toshiro; Roman Polanski’s The Tragedy Of Macbeth (1971), which proved controversial for its violence and nudity; and Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth (2015), starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.

Hkiff will also present other films based on Shakespeare’s plays in its CineFan April and May programme.

The festival’s Bruce Lee focus will present four of the films he made before his untimely death – The Big Boss (1971), Fist of Fury (1972), The Way Of The Dragon (1972) and The Game Of Death (1978) – in a new 4K digital format.

This year’s Hkiff, which marks its 40th edition, will run from March 21 to April 4. The opening night takes »

William Shakespeare, Bruce Lee to Be Honored at Hong Kong Festival

5 February 2016 4:03 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

William Shakespeare and Bruce Lee are both to be honored at the upcoming Hong Kong International Film Festival (March 21-April 4, 2016).

Marking the festival’s 40th edition and the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the Hkiff will program three vastly different film interpretations of Shakespeare’s stage play “Macbeth.” The trio are Akira Kurosawa’s “Throne of Blood,” Roman Polanski’s “The Tragedy of Macbeth” and last year’s “Macbeth” by star Australian director Justin Kurzel.

“’Macbeth’ has challenged filmmakers around the world as they have reimagined the interplay of fate and magic, human motivations and soul-wrenching questions of loyalty and destiny.  Yet, the violence at the heart of the play, with battles, beheadings and assassinations, also imposes demands on actors and audiences as powerful as the poetry of the Bard’s composition,” the festival said in a note.

The festival will also present additional films based on Shakespeare’s »

Film Review: ‘Ip Man 3’

28 January 2016 11:31 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fans of old-school kung fu will eat up the rock-solid, joint-snapping fights in “Ip Man 3,” the long-awaited reunion of Hong Kong helmer Wilson Yip and action juggernaut Donnie Yen, here prolonging the saga of the Wing Chun grandmaster who famously taught Bruce Lee. Less offensively nationalistic than the second installment but falling short of the glowing humanity, genial Cantonese humor and visual flair of the first, the pic is somewhat tarnished by its pedestrian plot and limp characterization. It has presold to many territories and garnered respectable box office of more than $7.6 million in Hong Kong, while receiving considerable attention in the U.S. press for an Asian film. However, the delay of a planned China release (with 3D conversion) from New Year’s Eve to March may deal a serious blow to its overall tally.

Since “Ip Man”s release in 2009, a sequel helmed by Yip and four other related biopics have appeared, »
