Takeshi Zhivago in Warlords
I recently (last week) picked up this poster from my favorite movie joint in NYC Chinatown, NY Music & Gifts. Peter Chan's 2007 WARLORDS has FINALLY gotten a proper release here in NY, 2+ years after it's original release. Cinema Village on East 12th St. is the place to be. Last years NYAFF screened this awesome war epic and I only missed it there because I already saw it on DVD. And I was lazy and didn't feel like getting my fat ass off of my sofa to head into the city and see it. I'm sure I mentioned before on this blog that I am a lazy fat body? I'm sure I did. WARLORDS is probably the best Chinese war epic, save for RED CLIFF, in the past 10 or so years. Brutal stuff.
