Mondo Monday (Late Edition) – “The Grandmaster”

 

I’ve always loved Wong Kar Wai movies. There’s something otherworldly about them. I’ll admit, I didn’t see his foray into American filmmaking (My Blueberry Nights), but I’ve kept up with most of his work throughout the years. These days, he’s dipping his toe into the world of Kung Fu filmmaking, and I have to say, the results

 

look awesome.

The Grandmaster is an epic tale inspired by Ip Man (played by Tony Leung),  the kung fu master who trained Bruce Lee, and spans two tumultuous decades in China’s history.

In my opinion, there’s not enough awesome Kung Fu movies. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Shaolin Soccer are the best mainstream ones I can think of from the past 15 or so years.

Anyway, Vania Zouravliov has created this beautiful print for Mondo. Check it out, and see the trailer for The Grandmaster below.
