Momma Got a Baby and Yang hang with Abbot — A Touch of Zen pt. 2


King Hu, now at Union Films, becomes notorious for going over budget and now turns, A Touch of Zen, into two films because of conflict with Union.  The second half of the movie was used as a mother movie it self to fulfill contract obligations toward the studio.  The film wasn’t released for four years.  King Hu’s heart was already out of it and the ending wasn’t as strong as the beginning.  The film feels like two different films between part 1 and part 2.  Questions are left up in the air and the film ends on a religious note.  This film also the beginning of a long career for Sammo Hung, as well as an inspiration for many more wuxia movies in the future.  Stephen Chow used a similar scene in Kung Fu Hustle during his last scene with the beast on the ground, much like Eunuch Wei.

Bleeding gold

Vision negative
turned on his own men
he about to lose it
took a jump from a cliff
with the birds in negative
wound up on the floor
stiff as a board
dead died and gone
lost his mind from a bop
now the holy Buddha bleeding gold
is the one who sends us off
