Kung-Fu action film scene: Chow Yun Fat (or some other Asian martial arts icon) receives words of wisdom from his dying friend/partner as the sun rises in a trashed karaoke bar (with English/Western songs where the dialogue otherwise is in Chinese). They previously had a heated discussion over some moral, political corruption before a fatal battle broke out and the antagonist got away.

thanks for another review, i'll try

I can definitely imagine that scene. :) Really has an eighties/nineties Asian cinema vibe to it... something like Hard Boiled. Feels like they don't make movies like that anymore but at least someone's making that type of music again! :D I like the ambience, the slow build-up... surprised I missed this thing last year. Really cool tribute. Jazzy, solo plucking, vibrant instruments all floating together in unison...


S3C responds:

any more good 90s Kung-Fu flicks? seems like I've seen them all

you've actually heard this before, a year ago before it was published, along with a reel of other stuff ;) Thanks for the second listen and review!
