Foshan To Hong Kong

This in honour of Wong Kar Wai's amazing new arthouse kung fu flic The Grandmaster. Took his Foshan to Hong Kong trip a couple of days back and was totally bowled over. Granted, the story line was a bit confusing at times, but with this kind of superb photography and mesmerizing choreography, who cares? If deadpan fortune cookie one-liners and the most badass slomo's ever are your thing, too, don't hesitate. Alternative soundtrack by Scratch the mighty Upsetter, a surprising fellow aficionado of the genre.

No Karl Douglas ??
I've got a great version of Kung Fu Fighting by Robyn Hitchcock kicking about somewhere.
If I can find it I will forward to you
