HARD BOILED
LAT SAU SAN TAAM
1992, 126 min, Hong Kong, Dir: John Woo

Cop Chow Yun-Fat and enigmatic killer Tony Leung join forces to take down a bloodthirsty gang of arms dealers in Woo’s over-the-top, expertly orchestrated follow-up to THE KILLER. The nail-bitingly suspenseful hospital-full-of-hostages third act manages to coax warmth and humor out of one of the most hypnotically violent climaxes in cinema history.

FACE/OFF
1997, Paramount, 138 min, USA, Dir: John Woo

A wild, dizzying thrill ride of a pulp epic that is probably the closest in spirit to Woo’s earlier Hong Kong thrillers. Federal agent John Travolta and psychotic master criminal Nicolas Cage exchange identities when a bizarre undercover operation to coax information out of Cage’s brother goes horribly wrong. Cat-and-mouse pyrotechnics mushroom as the beleaguered undercover man feverishly tries to recapture his nemesis - and his face. With Joan Allen and Gina Gershon. “A cinema of violent delirium so breathtaking it plays like visual poetry.” - Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times.


Special Ticket Price: $15. | HARD BOILED in Cantonese and English with English subtitles.
