João Eça's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

This is why I love to rewatch Carpenter: "Big Trouble" was a favorite of mine when I was a kid. Then I grew up and somehow I put it along Carpenter's medium-quality movies. And now, having realised throughout film school what cinema really is, I understand how Carpenter is the ultimate auteur: every frame of his movies breathe his signature, even this one, where he makes fun of his own moral codes. Masterpiece.
