  • The Five Venoms

    The Five Venoms

    ★★★★

    Number 1: the centipede style who changes focus so quickly and effortlessly
    Number 2: the snake style who threads frames together with clarity and agility
    Number 3: the scorpion whose single shot can say more than paragraphs of dialogue
    Number 4: the lizard whose camera can be at the ground, in the air, or attached to a sound studio wall
    Number 5: the toad whose story and choreography endure the tests of time
    Number 6: This film, the combination of each of the five deadly venoms
