A Better Tomorrow ★★★

A melodrama on top of an action flick on top of a family drama, this film bursts onto the screen with bright flashes and pain. Pain that is drenched in every unspoken moment, every bullet that tears through the skin. 

It’s complex and difficult being on opposite sides. When everything in your gut and every instinct is telling you that you’re on the same side. But you have to push that down and continue fighting. Stop thinking. Keep shooting. Until it’s all done and you can grip his hand again. 

(side note - nobody does a shootout like John Woo! King shit.)
