Asian documentary
31 July 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Since there aren't many comments of this film I decided to give one. Since I was, and still am, fascinated with the life of Bruce I started to see a couple of documentaries of him. This documentary captures his life very well although it's from an Asian point of view. No surprise since it's an Asian documentary. You see former gung-fu teachers speak, his house in Kowloon, his family history, etc. If you are interested in this, this documentary is the best out there. Especially interesting, and unique to this documentary, is the 15 minutes of footage of his funeral that you see in the beginning. No other documentary I've seen has this. It's fascinating to see. You see a lot of famous Asian faces you don't see in other documentaries, like Bolo Yeung and a very young Sammo Hung.

What I've learned, seeing a couple of Lee's documentaries, is that there isn't a best one. 'The life, the legend' focuses a lot on his life in Hong Kong, 'A Warrior's Journey' focuses more on the message Lee was trying to pass on and 'The Immortal Dragon' focuses more on his life in America. All combined gives you a pretty good picture of the life Lee had. The BEST documentary still has to be made in my opinion.
