YesAsia Editorial Description

This English-subtitled boxset comes with four classic wuxia works by legendary director King Hu: Dragon Inn, A Touch of Zen, Legend of the Mountain and Rage. The first three films are 4K restored versions while Anger is restored in 2K. It also comes with interviews and a book of film essays.

Dragon Inn (1967)
Among King Hu's most famous masterpieces, the 1967 period martial arts classic Dragon Inn went on to influence many wuxia films to come, including Tsui Hark's remakes New Dragon Gate Inn and The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate. Starring Shih Jun, Polly Shuang Kuan, Pai Ying and Miao Tian, the seminal film unfolds a battle of wits among martial artists of varying motives who converge at a lone inn in the desert hinterland. After executing his political rival Yu, ruthless Ming Dynasty eunuch Cao sends assassins to eliminate Yu's exiled family. In the barren outreaches of the empire, Cao's agents and three mysterious martial artists, who are on missions to rescue Yu's children, cross paths at Dragon Inn.

A Touch of Zen (1971)
King Hu's 1971 masterpiece A Touch of Zen is the holy grail of wuxia films. The three-hour epic weds glorious highwire-flying action sequences with insightful philosophy and a cinematic grace that remains unmatched to this day. Scholar Ku (Shih Jun) is approaching middle age, but has yet to find a wife. His prospects seemingly improve after a mysterious girl named Yang (Xu Feng) moves into the abandoned villa next door, but the fierce beauty wants nothing to do with the bookish Ku. When the scholar discovers Yang is the fugitive daughter of a wrongly executed noble being hunted by the authorities, he agrees to help Yang and her coconspirators elude capture and exact their revenge. With imperial forces closing in, Ku, Yang, and their band of rebels enter into a deadly fight that takes them on a journey throughout China and ends in the unlikeliest confrontation imaginable.

Legend of the Mountain (1979)
King Hu brings a gorgeous tale of the supernatural set in ancient China. Shih Jun is Ho, a scholar who journeys to the wilderness to transcribe some Buddhist Sutras, which contain within them the power to reincarnate spirits. However, during his journey, Ho begins to see ethereal visions. Upon arriving at his destination, he finds the area to be populated by few, a result of wars thinning the population. Still, Ho befriends a pair of comely women: Melody (Xu Feng), a demure general's daughter with a suspicious air, and Cloud (Sylvia Chang), another mysterious girl whose endearing nature belies a profound sadness. Soon, Ho realizes the surprising truth: he is in a land of ghosts, and the Sutras he carries hold tremendous power! Shot in Korea, Legend of the Mountain boasts the stunning landscapes and gorgeous cinematography expected of King Hu, along with a touching and haunting story about life, death, and the desperate pull of reincarnation.

Anger (1970)
King Hu's segment of the 1970 omnibus The Four Moods, Anger is inspired by the classic Peking Opera piece San Cha Kou ("At the Crossroads"). After Jiao Zan (Xue Han) is apprehended, Wang Ruo Qing plots to kill him by paying off the guards that are escorting him. Jiao Zhan's superior sends Ren Tang Hui (Zhang Fu Gen) to save him. Everyone crosses paths at a shady inn, but it turns out the inn owners also have their agenda and join in the battle.
