Sonny was right. The working man is a sucker, Dad. He is a sucker.
Rosamund Pike | ph. Frederic Auerbach
As you may know, Japanese martial art masters always balanced their ferocity with the calming beauty of an art – tea ceremony, calligraphy, flower arranging for example. For me, Chang was violent because it was his duty. He was also a kind and caring father. When he had to go to extremes in dealing justice, he balanced or cleansed himself with the soulful sounds of his karaoke. The music purified him and cleansed his karma. I also pictured Chang sending the souls of his victims with his voice.
