Chang Cheh: This 5 Deadly Venoms director might have been one of Rza's earliest influences. Often referred to as "The Godfather of Hong Kong Cinema," Bobby Digital was a huge fan of his work before the Wu Tang Clan was even a thought. Rza would post up in TImes Square with 40s and dust blunts and marvel at the silver screen filled with soldiers and warriors who upheld a code of morals and kinship. Cheh also tried his hand at writing music for his films, something Rza relates to after scoring films for Tarantino and now TMWTIF. Cheh's output was also inspiring, sometimes completing four or five carefully choreographed films in a single year.
