Let’s talk some fucking… war crime. True crime has been the theme before as we’ve looked at several 90s productions from Hong Kong cinema exploiting and depicting famous serial killers and crimes in a very commercial era for the Category III movie. The late 80s had no such trend but former Shaw Brothers director Mou Tun-fei unleashed one of the most notorious nasties out of Hong Kong cinema in 1988: Men Behind The Sun. As Wikipedia quite correctly says: “A graphic depiction of the war atrocities committed by the Japanese at Unit 731, the secret biological weapons experimentation unit of the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II”. Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal dives deep into the pages of history, Mou’s career and give his most known movie a thorough examination.
