Taiwan Noir 16: Night Orchid & The Greatest Plot

tn16

Because we had fun discussing colourful Wuxia pian last time (when The Ghost Hill was reviewed), we jump ahead a decade to Night Orchid by Chang Peng-yi, starring Adam Cheng and Brigitte Lin. Memorable color for the genre? We’ll see. Also, we get very sparse feedback regardless of the show on the network but when a listener request is put forth towards Taiwan Noir… a specialized, niche show, we listen. Andrew in California wrote in and told us of a movie that kind of scared him as a child. Through surreal scenes, spooky sound design, eerie music but largely, we’re also dealing with a kung fu movie here with hopefully, because it is called that, The Greatest Plot.
