Shaolin Soccer ★★★★½

one of the funniest things  i've ever seen, doesn't really matter that the non-physical comedy could be a little more consistent (probably also because i've heard so much gets lost in translation) or the first 30 mins is a little slow or some plot elements don't make any sense at all. when it gets going it gets fucking going. chow understands at a deep level how to structure a joke and what will be insanely funny to watch onscreen
