Jackie Chan, Siu Tin Yuen, Jang Lee Hwang, Dean Shek
Part of the Uncanny Valley Season
Those more familiar with Jackie Chan's later work in Hollywood are in for a real treat with Drunken Master - one of his earliest starring roles. The young Chan is quicker and leaner in his feats of elegant martial arts brillance, which come thick and fast in this oddly charming story of errant student and eccentric teacher. Young tearaway Wong Fei-hong (Chan) is sent away for a few timely lessons in discipline from his uncle - the titular, hard-drinking master - who, after Wong falls afoul of some local villains, begins to teach his young charge the techniques of 'drunken style' kung fu.
