Keanu quote of the day

What was the most important thing you wanted to communicate about the philosophy of tai chi through this film in addition to its beautiful choreography?

Reeves: I think for me, the strongest of the many threads, colors of it, was the idea of power and control, and even beyond that meditation and thoughtfulness. The application of the practice of tai chi. But I didn’t just want to make it tai chi-specific, but more about life – that in the decisions we make, how do we apply our thought to them and think them through, for the benefit of ourselves and others, as opposed to devaluing or corrupting or using and abusing others in a culture of interpersonal relationships.
