  • I am quite addicted to martial arts movies, which is odd when you consider that I hate violence. But when I declaim my love for these films my offline friends start back in horror and make warding motions with their hands. I am quite, quite alone in my obsession. My goal in joining Alive not Dead is to skulk around the forums and read other people’s pages and pick up some information on my favourite genre of films.

    “(Critic David) Bordwell… points out that the rythmic pulse of Hong Kong action requires stasis as well as movement, with ‘lightning switches between quick, precise gestures and punctuating poses’ ”. Leon Hunt, Kung Fu Cult Masters, p. 28

    Nicely spotted David Bordwell. Unfortunately, I didn’t copy down the Bordwell’s book that Hunt was referencing, but it may well have been the excellent Planet Hong Kong.
