BULLET IN THE HEAD
DIP HUET GAI TAU
1990, 120 min, Hong Kong, Dir: John Woo
Hailed by many as Woo’s finest and most personal film, BULLET is a thrillingly beautiful and searingly cathartic drama of three friends (Tony Leung, Jacky Cheung and Waise Lee) in 1967 Hong Kong, who are forced to flee after becoming unintentionally embroiled in a gang vendetta. Woo unflinchingly charts their harrowing escape into the fire of the Vietnam inferno, as the trio become targets for black marketeers as well as Viet Cong, and run a gauntlet that will tear apart their friendship in the process.
