Once Upon a Time in China (1991)

Summary: Filmed to perfection
There's a lot I can say about this classic Chinese language film. It was once upon a time my favorite movie of all time. I saw it from a broader perspective than with previous martial arts films, because OUATIC truly transcends the genre with so much to offer, and that is why HK Film Awards honored Tsui Hark as Best Director of the year. Bottom Line: if you only love kung fu movies for kung fu, then perhaps look elsewhere; but if you love cinema, then you are obligated to experience the unforgettable cinematic perfection that is Once Upon a Time in China.
