1 “The Grandmaster” is a deliriously beautiful martial-arts saga, a mix of exuberant violence and restrained eroticism. Meticulously directed by art-house master Wong Kar Wai (“In the Mood for Love,” “2046”), its fluid, bruising, occasionally lethal battles are choreographed like ballet romance. Even if you don’t give a fig for roundhouse kicks, this is an unmissable film, an intoxicating exercise in punch-drunk love.
