Master of the Flying Guillotine

Somebody had the brilliant idea to score a late-seventies Chinese martial-arts film with early-seventies German experimental music. Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream are used to great effect, but the most striking is the use of Neu! "Super 16" becomes the motif for the titular assassin, like an insane version of the "Imperial March" from Star Wars, and "Super" (same song, different speed) is used to create the most thrilling opening credits ever.
