DIRECTOR: TSUI HARK
CAST: ZHAO WEN-ZHOU, MOSES CHAN, XIONG XIN-XIN
The Blade is Tsui Hark’s masterful tribute to the martial arts films he grew up with. A reimagining of director Chang Cheh’s 1967 wuxia landmark The One-Armed Swordsman, this phantasmagoric action film moves like an out-of-control freight train. Featuring rapid cutting, berserk camera movement, frenetic choreography, and compositions bursting with detail, The Blade shows one of the world's best directors at the top of his game.
