KARATE-ROBO ZABORGAR (Japan, 2011, New York Premiere, 106 minutes) ­ Noboru
Iguchi (Robo Geisha) makes his best film yet. Not just that, but this is the
best-looking flick from label, Sushi Typhoon, yet. Slick, big budget and
almost family friendly, it’s based on an obscure TV show from the 70’s about
a young, bright-eyed police officer and his karate robot (who transforms
into a motorcycle) fighting crime. But in Iguchi’s version, the two split up
and have to reunite years later after middle-age has taken its toll.

DETECTIVE DEE AND THE MYSTERY OF THE PHANTOM FLAME (Hong Kong, 2010, 122
minutes) – Tsui Hark’s return to greatness is a Holmes-ian fantasia about
spontaneous combustion and kung fu deer. An exiled detective is returned to
favor in the Imperial court to solve a series of mysterious deaths that
delay the inauguration of the Empress Wu, played by Carina Lau, who won
“Best Actress” at the Hong Kong Film Awards 2011 for her performance. The
movie also won top prizes in Art Direction, Costume and Make-up Design as
well as in Sound Design and Visual Effects.
***The movie’s director, Tsui Hark, will be at the screening
