I will endeavour to get a copy of this and try out some recipes. Stir fry jerk chicken perhaps?

Dirty Ho

Recently I went to see Dirty Ho at the NFT (or should I say BFI as it has all changed now). The film is shwoing as part of the Heroic Grace : the Martial Arts Film Part II season. I went to Part I some years back and saw the Cheng Pei Pei classic Come Drink with Me.

Part II is 1970's - 1980s period of HK martial arts cinema. Dirty Ho is a Run Run Shaw classic starring Tarantino's favourite Gordon Liu (inscrutable face, amazing kung fu). Directed by Lau Kar Leung, legendary martial artist and director (most recently seen acting in Tsui Hark's Seven Swords). The bright, gaudiness of the early scenes set on a floating brothel are wonderful.
