The Grand Illusion is proud to once again host our good friend Dan Halsted from the Portland Grindhouse Film Festival and Hollywood Theater as he brings a one-two punch of super rare Kung-Fu on glorious 35mm:
FIST OF THE WHITE LOTUS (1980)
Gordon Liu is out to avenge the destruction of the Shaolin Temple! But he's up against an incarnation of the greatest villain in martial arts movie history: the unstoppable white eyebrowed Pai Mei (Gordon Liu played another incarnation of Pai Mei in KILL BILL VOL. 2) Lo Lieh plays the villain here, and he's at his trash-talking, beard-stroking, kung fu annihilating best. He'll even fight while he's naked. But watch out for his kung fu crotch! The opening credit sequence alone is worth the price of admission, and the fight scenes are choreographed by kung fu master Lau Kar Leung (director of 36TH CHAMBER OF SHAOLIN).
THE BASTARD SWORDSMAN (1983)
Every ten years, the Wu Tang Clan has a duel with their rival clan. The chief of the Wu Tang has devoted his life to learning "The Silkworm Technique" of sword fighting, but has failed to master it. At the same time, an orphan in the clan is refused in his requests to learn martial arts until a masked stranger begins training him. Before long, all roads will converge in high-flying sword fighting excitement and surreal special effects. Prepare for your mind to melt out of your skull when the Bastard unleashes his Silkworm Style! If you've never seen two kung fu masters fight it out inside a large flying cocoon, here's your chance!
