John Woo is celebrating his 71st birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed directors of his generation.
Popular director-author-producer John Woo (Red Cliff, Mission: Impossible II, Face/Off, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 71st birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Woo, a cultural icon
Born John Woo Yu-Sen in Guangzhou on September 1, 1946, his career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in history. Woo's not just a great director, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little John hasn't done.
And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for John Woo as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 71.
Happy Birthday, John, you're the best!
