Ashes of Time Redux (2008)

Directed by Kar Wai Wong

Cast: Brigitte Lin, Leslie Cheung, Maggie Cheung, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Jacky Cheung, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Li Bai, Carina Lau, Charlie Yeung

Hong Kong director Wong Kar-Wai takes another crack at his mostly misunderstood new wave martial arts film from 1994. Jacky Cheung, Leslie Cheung and Maggie Cheung (no relation) star in this ultra-stylized story of a brokenhearted hit man who lives in a desert and uses skilled swordsmen to carry out his contract killings. Wong's editorial tinkering (five or so minutes worth of cuts) attempts to alter what was already a radical condensation of Louis Cha's classic wuxia novel The Eagle-Shooting Heroes. But it's still a gorgeous film and deserves a second look. HD Available.

Toys You Can’t Have

Recognize the cast of characters at the right? Seem vaguely familiar? They should. These custom-made action figures by mad genius creator Sillof re-imagine what Star Wars would have looked like had it been a samurai film directed by Akira Kurosawa. (Which it kinda was: Lucas borrowed a lot from Kurosawa’s 1958 film The Hidden Fortress.) The details on these figures are amazing. Check out Sillof’s Samurai Wars page for amazing close-ups of each figure. Dig through Sillof’s other pages for a set of steampunk Star Wars characters, a bunch of Dune figures and an incredible collection called “Gaslight Justice League.”
