Man, The Karate Kid is a superb example of a sustained artistic vision. I love the juxtaposition of Bananarama's "Cruel Summer" with Daniel getting into trouble in front of his best girl on the P.E. field.
When we talk about complication, we're talking about that little corner of fate and coincidence. This happens here when Daniel heads down to the office and catches Mr. Kesuke Miyagi trying to snare flies with his chopsticks. It's a sweet film, and one that has held up really well over two+ decades...
