>From what I understand, Bullet in the Head is what
Woo would have done
in the prequel, A Better Tomorrow III, with which it does have some overlapping plot points, making it kind of a cross between III and Deerhunter. However, Woo had a falling out with producer Tsui Hark during the making of II, so Tsui Hark directed III himself.
My favorite Woo is probably still the first one I saw, The
Killer, but I have a soft spot for his lighter Once a Thief,
which takes inspiration from Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief.
It's Hudson Hawk done right.
