30 hand picked films. A new one every day
John Woo made the iconic Hong Kong gangster movie A Better Tomorrow in 1986, which famously has its roots in this 1967 black-and-white movie.
It's quite sad that the synopsis kind of reduces the film's quality and importance to a mere footnote of 'A Better Tomorrow'. This film is a masterpiece in its own right and for me, surpasses John Woo's version.
