Four Moods – Anger(Restored), The Wheel of Life – Part I(Restored), Triangle – Johnnie TO(FWKHR)
In the rare cinematic gem consisting of four unrelated stories by four revered filmmakers, Hu directed the section Anger. Inspired by the Peking Opera “At the Crossroads”, Anger depicts the tense showdown and complicated relationships between political schemers, avengers and vagabonds inside an inn. Whether indoor or outdoor, upstairs or downstairs, inside or outside of lobby, the scenes and movements are intertwined and filled with significance. In the Wheel of Life– Part 1, the characters battle with each other behind their own secret agendas and intrigue. Although the doomed outcome for everyone may follow the motif of Buddhist reincarnation, it may be indicative of Hu’s disappointment with humanity as exemplified in the world of wuxia. To directed the final act in “Triangle”, following the segments by Tsui Hark and Ringo Lam, on a tale of a heist gone wrong resulting in a restaurant-set standoff and subsequent shootout in the forest. Both chilling and ironically absurd, the story allows the director to revisit his frequent theme of Buddhism, moral gravitas, and redemption.
