I’m probably going to lose any and all movie geek cred that I might possess when I admit the following: I’m not really a fan of the kung fu/martial arts genre. I realize its place in film history and I even vaguely understand the importance of the Shaw Brothers in the development of Chinese/Hong Kong cinema. But the fact remains that I’ve just never been taken with the general genre. It also is worth saying that I’m certainly not trying to write off all Asian films. Kurosawa is a master of the motion picture, no matter what your feelings are on foreign film.
