Anita Mui.

i'm sure most people have heard by now that anita mui has died. it took me a while, but i finally connected that pop star anita mui was in fact the actress anita mui who stared in a bunch of hong kong action films, most notably in jacki chan films like rumble in the bronx, drunken master II and the superb mr canton and the lady rose. mui was always delightful in the films, even when they were mostly trash, like rumble in the bronx. i never listened to her music, since i neither speak cantonese nor really like pop music, but mr canton and the lady rose is one of my favourite films, and her passing is a sad thing.
