This month, Drafthouse Films is releasing a desperately obscure but engagingly nuts 1987 martial arts film called Miami Connection in the hope of turning this slice of chop-socky mayhem into a midnight movie-style cult success. In the magazine we recently ran a story on the twisted history and revival of the movie, which was financed by, produced by, codirected by, cowritten by, and starred a Florida-based tae kwon do guru named Grandmaster Y.K. Kim (and we’ll be posting a longer version of the article later in the week). But mere words cannot fully convey the lunatic nature of this film, even when those words include “amateurishly acted,” “awkwardly scripted,” “hopelessly bad,” and “Every single person said, ‘Hey, Y.K. Kim, this is trash.’”
