Eastern Promises: Chow Yun-Fat in THE KILLER (on 35mm)

A professional killer who wants out after a job goes wrong. A class of men deep in the desperate burrows of shaolin New York City crime. The story of men who want out, but the only way…proceed deeper in.

Together we will celebrate John Woo and The Wu-Tang Clan; Eastern Promises presents a double celebration of THE KILLER in glorious 35 mm, and Raekwon the Chef’s Only Built for Cuban Linx a.k.a., The Purple Tape.

“To all of my young brothers, I am your Ghost and your Rae, this is my Purple Tape, save up for Rainy Dayz.” – Pusha T, “The Games We Play” from Daytona

“The actor glides through the role wearing an enigmatic Mona Lisa smile and gazing down at the world with a dreamy-eyed sadness. At once poetic and suave, the nearly invincible Jeff never loses his cool. Even in the shootouts, in which he is typically outnumbered 10 to 1, he gracefully brandishes two guns, casually shooting from the hip and rarely wasting a bullet, while wearing an expression of anguished sorrow.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times
