Bullet in the Head/1990/Dir. John Woo
Trivia: Bullet in the Head was originally intended to be a prequel to A Better Tomorrow and even includes events that were mentioned in the film. However, due to a fallout between Woo and his regular producer, Tsui Hark, Bullet in the Head became it’s own film while Hark wrote and directed his own prequel to A Better Tomorrow, A Better Tomorrow III: Love & Death in Saigon.
The Killer/1989/Dir. John Woo
Fuuuck this movie is amazing! One of my favorites. The two leads, Chow Yun-Fat and Danny Lee also teamed up in 1987’s City on Fire, which is another amazing film and is also the base for Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs; all though I don’t think he’s ever admitted to that.The Killer was inspired by Jean-Pierre Melville’s La Samourai and Martin Scorsese’s Mean Streets. Walter Hill wrote an adaptation of The Killer in 1992 and a press release stated that the American remake would star Denzel Washington and Richard Gere. The producers had difficulty adapting the film for American audiences because they felt that it might be too homoerotic, because apparently if two guys decide to join forces in order to fight off the Triads it’s homoerotic…
