Something I forgot to mention– This piece was primarily motivated by a comment posted by Joel/MovieMan awhile back stating that with my emphasis on action-scenes in cinema that he’d like to see me concentrate on one in essay-form, or something to that effect. Originally I was planning to release this essay along with a couple of others focusing on other stand-out sequences– the gunfights from “Heat” and “The International”, the extant combat from the original footage of “Game of Death”, the contrasting versions of the swordfight from “Rashomon”, etc– but a nasty computer virus took those off the market for the time being. The next one I tackle will probably be “The International”, which I feel is just as underrated as TPM in its own ways.
