“Vampires are lucky, they can feed on others. We gotta eat away at ourselves. We gotta eat our legs to get the energy to walk. We gotta come, so we can go. We gotta suck ourselves off. We gotta eat away at ourselves til there’s nothing left but appetite. We give, and give and give crazy. Cause a gift that makes sense ain’t worth it. Jesus said seventy times seven. No one will ever understand why, why you did it. They’ll just forget about you tomorrow, but you gotta do it.”—from Abel Ferrara’s Bad Lieutenant
I think John Woo has run his course as HK’s preeminent director, for a fact, I can’t really think of someone in the past 5 years to have made a great impact. Except for Johnny To… Just like maopanalo, To has made a lot of good, if not great, movies. This is one of my favorites. There’s this one great tracking shot of a shoot out that To did. Wheee!
