You know how you’ve really been wanting to see something at the Roxie lately? Consider The Last Dragon, presented this Friday night by local comedian and podcaster W. Kamau Bell, with an appearance by Taimak, star of the the film.
Here’s what Bell has to say about it:
When I was 13 years old there was no movie that hit me in my cinematic g spot as hard as THE LAST DRAGON. As a lover of Bruce Lee, I wanted to be LIKE him. But once I saw THE LAST DRAGON, I wanted to straight up BE Taimak AKA Leroy Green AKA Bruce Leroy. This movie has it all: martial arts, Motown music, deep meaning, many jokes, and righteous Black maleness. The least I can do is to be a part of bringing Taimak to the Roxie Theater during the 30th anniversary of this legendary, genre busting film so I, and the many others, can say, “Thank you!”
