Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story is a 1993 American biographical drama film
directed and co-written by Rob Cohen, and starring Jason Scott Lee
(pictured), Lauren Holly, Nancy Kwan and Robert Wagner. The film follows
the life of Bruce Lee (Jason) from his relocation to the United States
from Hong Kong to his career as a martial arts teacher, and then
television and film actor. It also focuses on the relationship between
Bruce and his wife Linda Lee (Holly), and the racism to which Bruce was
subjected. Rather than making a traditional biographical film, Cohen
decided to include elements of mysticism and to dramatise fight scenes
to give it the same tone as the films in which Bruce starred. Dragon:
The Bruce Lee Story received positive reviews, with Jason widely praised
for his performance. The film's commercial success, exceeding box office
averages for biographical films, was attributed to its romantic themes
and its appeal to people outside the traditional kung fu film audience.

Wikiquote quote of the day:
The Perfect Way is only difficult for those who pick and choose;
Do not like, do not dislike; all will then be clear. Make a hairbreadth
difference, and Heaven and Earth are set apart; If you want the truth
to stand clear before you, never be for or against. The struggle
between "for" and "against" is the mind's worst disease; While
meaning is misunderstood, it is useless to meditate on Rest.
