The wild bunch, bold cinematic rebels and adventurous films
HONG KONG, Taiwan | 105 minutes | 1973
China, late Yuan dynasty. A battle is brewing between the army and a group of rebels. Everyone is in the dark as to who, when and how, but what is known is that the rebels’ secret battle plans have fallen into the hands of the man who’s commandeered the Spring Inn. Cue the stunning action sequences . . . Considered by many as the best work by the legendary King Hu (A Touch of Zen, Raining in the Mountain), it’s the final chapter in his “Inn Tetralogy.” A martial-arts cult film with a feminist slant that’s also a breathless intrigue. Masterful and compelling: cinema as high art.RESTORED VERSION"With its bevy of female stars, action choreographed by Sammo Hung, and classic inn setting, this 1973 classic is prime for rediscovery."
