From Cleopatra Wong to Cosa Nostra Asia

Image
Hot off directing Cleopatra Wong and Cosa Nostra Asia, 1970s Filipino exploitation director Bobby Suarez then brought us into Manila's criminal underworld with... Devil's Three . When an underworld kingpin's daughter is kidnapped by his own men, he calls in Singapore secret agent Cleopatra Wong, a beautiful karate queen who rounds up her team that includes a 300+ pound psychic named Madame Rotunda and a flamboyant ex-cop.  If the synopsis didn't hook you, we're not sure what will. Perhaps this unnamed reviewer may pique your interest with their review, " Devil's Three  may be the very definition of entertainingly-bad. It’s not unintentionally funny because it’s a dubbed, low-budget action movie; it’s intentionally jokey – I’m also guessing that Suarez knew how the dubbing would turn out – and only just misses the mark at being family friendly."

We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory." In 2016, Naomi Judd released a memoir that shared her battle with mental illness. And just a day before  the Judds were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and before the first day of Mental Health Awareness Month, Ms. Judd took her own life.  Naomi describes in her book the "boulder-like weight of my severe treatment-resistant depression and terrifying panic attacks."  During the induction ceremony, Ashleys Judd said,  "I’m sorry that she couldn’t hang on until today," as she and Wynonna recited Psalm 23 in tears with the latter saying,  "Though my heart is broken I will continue to sing."
