Win Wong Kar-wai’s The Grandmaster!

Grandmaster Cover

In 2012, we were joined by guest Mathieu Ravier, who chose Wong Kar-wai as his filmmaker of the month. At the time, we speculated that it wouldn't be long before we saw The Grandmaster, Wong Kar-wai's long-rumoured epic biopic of martial arts legend (and Bruce Lee's trainer) Ip Man.

It actually took two years for The Grandmaster to arrive in Australian cinemas. Was the wait worth it? Well, you can find out for yourself! (The answer is actually yes: it's a stylish and sleek and beautifully-made film, but we needed a segue for the purposes of the competition.)

Grandmaster DVD

We have three copies of The Grandmaster to give away thanks to Roadshow Entertainment. To win one of them, simply answer the following question:

In the October 2012 episode of Hell Is For Hyphenates, Mathieu Ravier revealed that he moved to Hong Kong almost exclusively because of one specific and clearly influential Wong Kar-wai film. Which film was it?

To enter, send your answer to co*********@he*****************.com by midnight on 5 March 2015. All correct answers will be put into a gigantic electronic sorting machine/a hat, and the winning entries will be drawn at random. The winner will then be notified by email (not at random).
