Episode 131. Channeling Jackie Chan

One of the greatest physical performers of recent filmmaking, Jackie Chan is the focus of today’s discussion as Alex and Jonathan look at Drunken Master (1978), Police Story (1985), Police Story 3: Supercop (1992), and The Foreigner (2017). We talk about Jackie Chan’s journey finding his on-screen persona in the wake of Bruce Lee, the innovation and dedication that he put into his craft of acting and stunt performance, and the legacy he leaves on cinema even as his career isn’t quite over.
