Best, most real documentary about Bruce Lee. Period. Endorsed by Linda and Shannon.
I was fortunate enough to see the first public showing in Seattle, which included a Q&A session with Linda and Shannon Lee after the movie. This particular documentary, unlike virtually all of the countless others, is endorsed and promoted by Bruce's family.
The biopic afforded an exceptionally thoughtful and unique insight into not only how Bruce Lee impressed his fans, which we are all aware of, but also his thought behind and motivation for becoming who he was. Bruce Lee was a unique thinker, much ahead of his time in the martial arts. He had the cojones to say "ok, that's not real" when appropriate and to express himself and his martial expertise by living his life as a true warrior, distilling his abilities and techniques down to their purest and most effective levels.
Valuable additions included special thoughts and dialogue with some of his true friends and colleagues like Dan Inosanto and others.
See this film; understand the message...and "be like water, my friend."
