Drunken Master 2
Dir. Lau Kar-leung & Jackie Chan. 1994. Hong Kong. 102 min. 35mm.
Filmed at the peak of Chan’s prime, 16 years after his breakout turn in Drunken Master, this transcendent pairing of classic Shaw Brothers director Lau Kar-leung and Jackie Chan resulted in what many claim to be the greatest martial arts film ever made. In this take on the legend of Wong Fei-hung, Chan shares the screen with the great Ti Lung and also Anita Mui, who almost steals the show as his motor-mouthed stepmother. The plot revolves around Fei-hung’s attempts to foil a foreign syndicate trafficking in ancient Chinese artifacts, but the film’s jaw-dropping kung-fu sequences need little explanation. Lush, opulent, and made with no consideration for budget or schedule, it took three months just to shoot the final action scene.
Screening preceded by a short Q&A with Jackie Chan moderated by La Frances Hui, Asia Society Film Curator.
