Sundays on Fire: Secret Hong Kong 35mm Feature

Run Time: 84 min. Format: 35mm

Warning: Images are not from the movies we’re showing. Trust us, you can’t imagine what we’re showing!

You demanded it! Subway Cinema teams up with the Nitehawk Prospect Park to present Sundays on Fire, unleashing an action classic in 35mm from the golden age of Hong Kong cinema on the second Sunday of every month!

Kicking off our THIRD year in a row, this modern classic from the late ‘90s redefines the action movie. With its moog-inflected soundtrack, impeccable fashion sense, and stylized violence, it’s an exploration of the world of work, presented so intensely that everything else — dialogue, plot, character — boils away, leaving a strong, astringent residue. It’s movie as haiku, full of austere shoot-outs, precise tracking shots, and complex, wordless exchanges. We’re not announcing the title until it appears onscreen because it’s more fun that way, but this Zen garden of violence is meticulously arranged, raked, styled, and set.
