Fast (Kung) Food
2 January 2020 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

If you are interested in the easter movies, you probably have many reasons to watch this. But be aware that this is quite general and has a lot of opinion pieces. A lot of actors today or from the high Shaw Brothers era talk about the influence or how they made their living. One specific scene is really great, where we get to see how sound was created on set! Yes while the people were fighting, others made the noises! This was an incredible nugget to see.

Apart from that there is fast paced interviews, a lot of cuts (one imagines this can be seen as "choreography" - hits after hits). and a lot of small digestable information. If that sounds good, go ahead and watch it.
