The Last Emperor (1987)

After being captured by the Red Army as a war criminal in 1950, Pu Yi recalls his childhood from prison.

As revolution sweeps through China, the world Pu Yi knew is dramatically upended.

In New York, racist Capt. Stanley White (Mickey Rourke) becomes obsessed with destroying a Chinese-American drug ring run by Joey Tai (John Lone), an up-and-coming young gangster as ambitious as he is ruthless.
