Reviews, The Grandmaster


Early Review Roundup: Wong Kar-wai's 'The Grandmaster' Strikes a Balance Between Haunting Style and True Kung Fu

The Grandmaster – Two early reviews for Hong Kong auteur Wong Kar-wai's highly anticipated and long-gestating "The Grandmaster" have hit the web, both praising the film's deft balance between being a "beautiful" kung fu genre movie and a stylish exploration of many of the director's career-long themes. Complaints include that the film has been cut drastically from its intended length, and that actor Chang Chen is given too little screen time, while muse Tony Leung "lacks his usual intensity." Highlights below, updates to be added as more reviews come in. 7 years 26 weeks ago via theothersenhman
