A Touch of Zen pt.I
I think after watching a couple of King Hu's films I noticed he uses humorous aspects in his movies. I really enjoy these kinds of aspects added into his films, it helps to make the film easier to watch and keeps me engaged. In the first part of A Touch of Zen, I really liked the way he portrayed the relationship between Sheng-tsai and his mother. It was very humorous and you could really relate to the characters. As I was watching the beginning, I thought that the spider webs that Sheng-tsai encounters while searching the outside of the house was foreshadowed his the scene when he stumbled across the trap. Spider's use their webs to ensnare their prey, so I thought that when Sheng-tsai came across the trap within the house it kind of showed how he was almost ensnared by the setup.
