not to be missed
10 July 2003 | by DAW-8See all my reviews

This is a fantastic documentary, both in terms of narration and information about Bruce, but even moreso in terms of the footage shown. More impressive than the 'new' Game of Death footage is the footage of Lee practicing at his Los Angeles home, and, most of all, his philosophical remarks in the episodes of "Longstreet". Those scenes are just incredible, such as his statement to James Fransiscus "Like everyone, you want to WIN, but you must be prepared to die", said in complete earnestness, with a very early-1970s flute playing in the background. When was the last time you heard anything like that on television or film? In any case, this is a beautiful tribute to Bruce as the complex, philosophical, extraordinarily passionate human being he was. You will not be disappointed.
