SeasonBruce Lee 4K

Enter a legend. Bruce Lee’s return to the Hong Kong film industry after a decade in America proved to be his big breakthrough, launching him to superstardom and setting a new standard for kung-fu heroics. Screening in bossed up 4K.

In The Big Boss, he commands the screen with his gravitas and explosive physicality in the role of a Chinese immigrant working at a Thai ice factory and sworn to an oath of nonviolence. When he discovers that the factory’s ruthless higher-ups are running a secret heroin ring and offing their own workers, his commitment to pacifism is put to the test.

With his undeniable charisma and fluid, lightning-fast martial-arts style, Lee is a revelation, streaking across the screen with a speed and power the likes of which had never been seen before.

Screening as part of Bruce Lee 4K, a mini season celebrating the martial arts maestro, featuring four of his best films this June, in anticipation of the 50th anniversary 4K re-release of Enter the Dragon this August.
