    John Woo's Last Hurrah for Chivalry (1979) - Though it looks mostly like one of those Shaw Bros. swordplay epics, there's just enough experimentation with style and technique to help you trace Woo's development as a director. It stars Wai Bak, who played the douchebag Snake in 5 Venoms, and I'm happy to report he's actually likable in this, though he makes it once again difficult not to think of the film as homoerotic (especially the prancing scene). Though expert Bey Logan says there are a lot of things that have been seen before here, I never have, so there was a lot of originality for me, whether it be those gray ninjas, the sleepwalking sword master or the fire breathing. 2 years 5 months ago
