New York turntablists IXL and Excess will perform a hip-hop “scratch score” for Prodigal Son, which will be shown by video projection and has been edited by the accompanists. Ted Shen writes of the film, “The fight choreography of martial-arts icon Sammo Hung (TV's Martial Law) outshines his direction of actors in this 1983 kung fu comedy about a rich merchant's spoiled son (Yuen Biao, a sparring buddy and frequent collaborator of both Hung and Jackie Chan) who is humbled by an ass-kicking female impersonator and learns to be a master fighter. Of course, all this is just a pretext for dazzling fights and the sort of coarse slapstick popular with the Cantonese, plot be damned.” 100 min.
