Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
It’s about time we feature John Woo. I’m sorry this pic from Hard Boiled doesn’t have any flying doves in it, but it does have John Woo holding a gun on one of his actors, so there’s that.
I was in my teens when I finally started taking in John Woo’s Hong Kong craziness. The Killer and Hard Boiled were watched back to back if my hazy memory is accurate and I loved them both. Both movies represented a radically different kind of filmmaking than I was used to.
While The Killer is fantastic, Hard Boiled won out if only for the insanity of the hospital scene. Chow Yun-Fat is great in these movies… He has a Han Solo cocksure ease in these early films that just makes you want to watch the dude all day long.
Here’s the pic, featuring John Woo himself! Click for the bigger version! Enjoy!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic is ALREADY HERE!!!
