COME DRINK WITH ME (454 words)
COME DRINK WITH ME Come Drink with Me (screens Saturday, January 3 at the Dryden Theatre) is the 1966 film that raised the bar for two generations (and counting!) of the historical martial arts epic.
Come Drink is just one film from the impressive and staggeringly large catalog (over 800 full-length movies) of the Shaw Brothers, who also produced Five Fingers of Death and 1978's The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (screening Tuesday, January 20 at the Dryden).
Come Drink establishes characters (the drunken bum who can really kick a whole lot of ass) and situations (the two-story tea room brawl) that have practically become clichés of the genre in the subsequent four decades.
