快乐的一年

Everybody loves a Dragon, especially when it comes to the Chinese New Year. Bruce Lee, arguably the most famous human representation of the mythological beast, wrote and directed his only feature in 1972, originally titled overseas THE WAY OF THE DRAGON since it came out before ENTER THE DRAGON. After the staggering success of his first two films, Lee used his clout to helm this classic and further push his cinematic skills. While he said the film was designed primarily for Chinese audiences with its over-the-top humor and caricatures, global audiences were excited by the further development of Lee’s star charisma (even dubbed) and his Jeet Kune Do techniques, culminating in the classic battle with Chuck Norris at the Roman Coliseum. So let’s hope this is a year when we can deliver a series of repeated high kicks to our enemies and honor them at their defeat with the same class as our favored Little Dragon…

  1. Love this one for two distinct reasons. Bruce Lee, of course, and for him kicking Chuck’s ass. That never gets old.

      There’s a particular pleasure in seeing Norris get a historic film beat-down in light of his recent rhetoric.

  2. why do so many of the truly greats die young? so depressing. it weighs heavy on my heart.
