Tsui Hark Hong Kong, 1995

Mahda Purmahdi's rating of the film The Blade

Certainly a powerful impressionistic demonstration of physical violence, masterly crafted, but in the end, it lacks a cohesive story telling structure, and I don't think this picture of violence that Tsui Hark put forward, is a reason good enough for this loose narrative and half-baked characters. I hope I can change my opinion when I re-watch the film.
