The ending of Angel Enforcers from 1989. A slightly lower budget attempt at John Woo style action. This time female cops verses Kenneth Tsang (Chow Yun Fat's manager in The Killer). I was never able to get this film at the store but now it is streaming on amazon prime under the title Angel Terminators.
30 minute BBC documentary from 1975 on the Shaw Brothers movie studio. Lots of great behind the scenes footage. Shows the foley sound effect work.Highly recommended.
Sogo Ishii's Shuffle is a proto cyberpunk mash up of Run Lola Run and Taxi Driver, in mostly black and white with a noisy jazz/funk soundtrack. It is the first adaptation of the work of Otomo Katsuhiro, the creator of Akira. 30 minutes long and subtitles, if you use the "cc" button on youtube. Ishii also directed the film Electric Dragon 80,000 V
