With his appearance in Marvel Studios' SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS, we are getting yet another wave of recognition (predominantly Western) for the legendary Hong Kong actor. In addition to the above splendid retrospective of his past works, featured here are as well numerous interviews, and scenes from his said past films, and I don't care if I am gushing over him, cheers :)
The following are select scenes of different features (not necessarily presented chronologically) that might prove to be SPOILERS for the films mentioned/referred to, so be warned! Otherwise: ENJOY!
I'll also take this opportunity to feature this splendid Video Essay by Accented Cinema, showcasing how "How Tony Leung Acts With His Eyes"...!
