Mr. Cinema

On my way to Abu Dhabi (before going to Hyderabad), I watched "Ocean's Eleven" with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and "Maltese Falcon" with Bogart and some other Canadian TV shows. On my way back to Manila, I watched "Surf's Up" and "Mr. Cinema." The last has Anthony Wong as a projectionist who was also a leftist who wanted China to rule HK even in the 1970s. He remained a projectionist until the moviehouse closed in 2006, much to the ire of his wife and son played by Ronald. Samson Chiu who directed the Golden Chicken series managed to bring in 40 yeas of HK cinema in the movie as well as the Handover, SARS, Y2K and many collapses of the HK market. Wong reminded me of someone else and it only came to me now who he was: Ricky Lee. Wong and Lee. So apt.
