Last Man Standing (1996)

For Last Man Standing (1996), the great, old-school action director Walter Hill pulled together threads from all over film history. To start, he adapted Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo (1961), which itself was borrowed from a Dashiell Hammett story (though Kurosawa and his co-writer Ryuzo Kikushima are the ones that get credit here). Likewise, the story was used as the basis for Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars (1964). But rather than make a detective story, a samurai story, or a straight Western, Hill decided on this combination of gangster movie and Western. That is, all the conventions of the Western are in place, except that the characters wear fedoras and drive cars. read more...

Heroes of the East (1979)

If King Hu's Come Drink with Me seemed like a breakthrough with its tough girl hero, just get a look at this culturally sensitive film filled with dazzling battle sequences -- and no casualties. Gordon Liu stars as Tao, a Chinese man who agrees to an arranged marriage with a Japanese woman, Kuda (Yuko Mizuno). No meek and mild-mannered housewife, she quickly makes it clear that she intends to hang onto her own Japanese rituals in her new Chinese house. read more...
