Wallace Chung on “Three”

wallace-chungFate, morals, courage, sensibility—parts of everyone’s life. Story, journey, experience, composure— a game of three. Mortals blunder, masters blunder by mistake. The balance of Taiji; the principles of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism. Those are my takeaway from the film “Three.” When I was on the set, I often saw Director To acting like a vagabond doing his favorite thing, bold and unbridled. His world goes beyond considerations of good and evil and lends itself more to the portrayal of reality. Since part of the reality is humanity, any thought that is supposed to cross a character’s mind he wouldn’t shun. Hence, “classic” means to Director To making the films that he wants to make and letting time form the tribunal. “Three” will definitely become Director To’s new classic. “Where there are three men walking together, one of them is bound to be able to teach me something.” We will prove that.

[Note: According to Wikipedia—

Taiji (simplified Chinese: 太极; traditional Chinese: 太極; pinyin: tàijí; literally: “great pole”) is a Chinesecosmological term for the “Supreme Ultimate” state of undifferentiated absolute and infinite potential, the oneness before duality, from which Yin and Yang originate, contrasted with the Wuji (無極, “Without Ultimate”).

Confucianism, also known as Ruism, is a system of philosophical and “ethical-sociopolitical teachings” sometimes described as a religion.

Buddhism is a religionand dharma that encompasses a variety of traditionsbeliefs and spiritual practices largely based on teachingsattributed to the Buddha.

Taoism (also called Daoism) is a spiritual, philosophical and religious tradition of Chinese origin that emphasizes living in harmony with the Tao (also romanized as Dao).]
