I really liked most of A Touch of Zen. But then it just sort of changed into something else near the 3/4 mark. I'm going to assume someone here has seen this. Is this similar?

If this is Rain in the Mountain also know as A Touch of Zen 2 then I would be willing to argue it as a better and more philosophical film. Probably the greatest cinematic treatment of Buddhism I have ever seen.

Raining in the Mountain is a different film shot around the same time. Legend is a more discursive movie with less action and a ghost story that Hu actually follows through on (unlike A Touch of Zen where he used it as a jumping-off point for something very different). There's still a Buddhist aspect but it feels more elemental in a way.

I'll definitely pick it up then. Thanks for the information.

Great news that these are finally coming out in supposedly good form!

Up date: ordered from Kino, whose pre-order price was cheaper than Amazon's (but I had to order one other silent to get free shipping) ;-)

Kino has acquired NA rights to The Atomic Cafe, renewing my perpetual irrational hope of someone rescuing Public Shelter from purgatory.

Beaver for The Lion In Winter; it looks extremely similar (ie, not good) to the French BD of which tenia posted caps, though the color grading is a little different.

2017 French BD cap vs 2018 Kino BD cap

Beaver for Trigger Jr. Is it just me, or do some of these shots (skin tones especially) look bizarre?

Why do some movies with the process (Johnny Guitar, for instance) look relatively normal, while others, like this one, have the desaturated look to them?
