My latest article over at Black Gate is an appreciation of Chinese director Zhang Yimou’s amazing “wuxia” trilogy–a trio of kung fu films that revolutionize the genre and re-invent the martial arts movie in the same way that Ang Lee’s CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON did at the turn of the millennium.

Yimou is one of my all-time favorite directors, and his movies are masterworks of visually kinetic storytelling.
