snake in the eagle’s shadow (1978)

End fight scene from Jackie Chan’s 1978 breakthrough. Craziest foley and 70s soundtrack: As well as original music by Chou Fu-liang, the original version of the film features Jean Michel Jarre’s “Oxygène (Part 2)” and Space’s “Magic Fly”. Like many Hong Kong movies of the era, it also includes samples from western movie scores, including A Fistful Of Dollars, You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, and even the Death Star explosion moment from Star Wars.  The English subtitles over (different) English dubbing are great, too.

The full movie is on Youtube, HERE, but if you’re in South Africa, like me, you won’t be able to watch it due to copyright nonsense.

each day

“She arches her body like a cat on a stretch. She nuzzles her cunt into my face like a filly at the gate. She smells of the sea. She smells of rockpools when I was a child. She keeps a starfish in there. I crouch down to taste the salt, to run my fingers around the rim. She opens and shuts like a sea anemone. She’s refilled each day with fresh tides of longing.”

– Jeanette Winterson, ‘Written on the Body’
