I haven’t done ‘Fisticuffs Friday’ in a while, so here’s something rather tasty.
Kung Fu Fighting, a documentary made by the BBC featuring interviews with Donnie Yen, Tsui Hark, Cynthia Rothrock, Bey Logan, Moon Lee, Carter Wong, Jet Li, Raymond Chow, loads of folks.
This was originally shown during BBC 2’s great ‘Kung Fu Night’ they put on in 1997. I loved this doc ‘back in the day’, as the kids say. This came along just around the time when I was starting to explore Hong Kong cinema outside of Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung etc, and with all the great clips on show I remember watching it many times. Enjoy!
