Kung Fu Hustle
Kung Fu Hustle was recommended to me by one of my Chicago film buddies. He saw this film on a flight back from China last month, how appropriate!! Funny, fast-paced and hi-tech, this Chinese, gangster story was very entertaining for me. The absurdity of the story and situations cracked me up. Limbs fly, old ladies in curlers run with animated legs, this film is a crazy ride. The first Steven Chow film I ever saw, was Shaolin Soccer, at a film festival a few years ago. The man sitting next to me giggled through the whole film! Kung Fu Hustle has a similar effect. It is in Mandrin, so there are subtitles. A fun foreign film!!!!
