Tony Leung stars as Ip Man in Wong Kar Wai's The Grandmaster

Win free tickets to a Los Angeles screening of the martial arts epic

The Grandmaster, starring Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi, is the latest historical drama to spin the legend of martial arts master Ip Man, the man who taught Bruce Lee. It's also the much-anticipated new film from famed Hong Kong auteur Wong Kar-wai. Typical to the director's beloved style, it's slow, gorgeous, and at times incomprehensible. I really liked it. Here's the theatrical trailer:

With fight choreography by Yuen Wo-Ping and exquisite cinematography by Philippe Le Sourd, The Grandmaster is a beautiful, slow-burning tale of love, longing and asskicking. Who wants to see it?
