Mixing vintage Hong Kong cinema of the recognizeable kind rather than us going for obscure only has been our tac this year but the programmer of this episode Dr. Lam brings Kenny B and Tom K-W a slice of current too. First up is our review of Wong Kar-wai’s debut movie, the triad-romance As Tears Go By from 1988 and second is Lau Ching-wan’s welcome back party into the fold of Milkyway Image in the form of Johnnie To’s and Wai Ka-fai’s Mad Detective.
Ken’s note. Audio gets a little low on my end at points for some reason. Sorry about that.
