Let The Bullets Fly
A film by Jiang Wen
When and Where: March 2 in Cinema Village, NYC and Laemmle NoHo 7 in Los Angeles, March 9 at 4-Star in San Francisco
A 2010 action comedy film written and directed by Jiang Wen, “Let The Bullets Fly” is a stunning mix of dark comedy and eye-popping violence. In China, this action-comedy starring Chow Yun-Fat has become the highest-grossing domestic film of all time. Set in 1920s Sichuan, the film tells the tale of the bandit “Pocky” Zhang Mazi, who poses as a local governor in a dusty town- but finds himself at odds with the local mobster, who is not eager to share his turf with another drifter.
