Podcast On Fire 165: Police Story & Shanghai Blues


Back in the saddle to discuss Hong Kong cinema classics (or not) but rather Hong Kong cinema’s prolific movies and filmmakers and the selection this is time Kenny B’s. We’ll be talking the box office smash and Best Picture winner at that year’s Hong Kong Film Awards: Jackie Chan’s Police Story (1985). Leave no glass or glass table unsmashed! Also in the second half, a personal favourite of Tsui Hark’s, the one he’s described as starting everything: 1984’s Shanghai Blues.
