The Grandmaster

Recommended

2013 | 130 minutes | Rated PG-13

Wong Kar-wai's latest, starring Tony Leung and Ziyi Zhang, focuses on Ip Man, the legendary teacher of Wing Chun kung fu. As good as it is, this edited version of the film also feels straightforward and segmented—neither of which are traits one usually associates with Wong Kar-wai's best stuff. If only, in this modern era, there was some way to use a computational device—along with some sort of online network, perhaps?—to track down the original version. If only.
