Fist City: COME DRINK WITH ME

Martial arts cinema wouldnâ€™t be martial arts cinema without COME DRINK WITH ME. Golden Swallow (Chang Pei-Pei) is on a mission to save the local governorâ€™s son from a group of thugs led by the evil Jade-Faced Tiger. After demolishing some gangsters at an inn, Golden Swallow meets a drunken beggar. And the stage is set for a jaw-dropping adventure where nothing is what it seems, including Golden Swallow herself. With a dazzling performance from Chang Pei-Pei â€” â€œthe queen of the swordsâ€ â€” and the dynamic direction of King Hu, COME DRINK WITH ME set a new standard for womenâ€™s roles in martial arts cinema. For fans of poetic screen violence who can appreciate the majesty of pulp genre cinema, thereâ€™s nothing more revelatory than seeing this movie in a theater.
