The Irresistible: Hong Kong Movie Once Upon A Time in China Series - An Extensive Interview with Director/Producer Tsui Hark
Abstract:We had been standing outside of director Tsui Hark's Beverly Hills house for almost two hours. Our appointment was set at three o'clock and now it was almost five. We insisted on waiting since this was the only opportunity to interview the well-known director of such films as Swordsman II, The Blade, The Lovers, and the Once Upon A Time in China series. Finally, a car showed up and as the driver stepped out of the car we recognized Hark right away, wearing his trademark dark sun glasses. He was very surprised to see us since he thought we were going to meet him at his Columbia Studio office where he had waited for us for two hours. We apologized for the misunderstanding and asked if we could still do an on-camera interview with him for the documentary that we are producing titled: "The Irresistible: Hong Kong Movie Once Upon A Time in China Series". He agreed by saying "It's fine, let's go ahead with the interview, but first I have to make a fast noodle for myself."
