Mickey Rourke at the top in Michael Cimino's cult thriller
Captain Stanley White, a hot-tempered Vietnam veteran, is one of New York's most respected cops. He was transferred to the Chinatown district following the assassination of the representative of the Chinese community. White is convinced of the existence of a mafia which governs order in the neighborhood and fuels the drug trade. He embarks on a veritable crusade against the leaders of this so-called triad, itself eaten away from within. Despite warnings from his superiors and threats from the Chinese community, Stanley White embarks on this battle against all odds...
Five years after Heaven's Gate , Michael Cimino returns to the front of the stage with The Year of the Dragon , a fascinating and anxiety-provoking dive into the meanders of New York's Chinatown. Mickey Rourke here plays Stanley White, a cop ready to make any sacrifice for his ideal of justice, somewhere between John Wayne and Dirty Harry. Michael Cimino explores a new facet of America and its internal struggles between communities, opting for a brilliantly staged thriller with multiple twists. To be admired for the first time in High Definition!
