A Better Tomorrow

I decided that this would be my final film of my 1986 run (the 40th) a few days ago, when a friend reminded me that it came out that year. The films of John Woo are what got me into Hong Kong cinema (and then Asian cinema), and although I’m pretty sure Bullet in the Head was my first Woo film (I still have vivid memories of being blown away by its manic energy), and Hard Boiled is probably the most classic collaboration between Woo and Chow Yun Fat, this is still a really great movie. I haven’t watch classic HK cinema in ages, but this gave me the bug to watch more.
