Taiwan Noir 13: Devil Returns & Kill For Love

taiwannoir13

It’s important to sometime note that part of the selection process for these episodes are about detailing my (Kenny B that is) own journey through this era of Taiwanese movies, mainly late 70s, early 80s. It’s about the disocvery of directors, performers, movies, classic scenes, iconic moments and about trying to explain my comfort factor watching these movies, moments and performers. That means even the stinkers and the mediocrity deserves a voice. That is our long winded way of saying welcome to Taiwan Noir 13 on Richard Chen’s Devil Returns and Kill For Love with Kenny B and  Tood Stadtman.

What’s Korean Cinema? 13 – Chilsu And Mansu & Nowhere To Hide

wkc13

What do you get when pairing up movies where the still and straightforward is mindblowing and when the rabid, perfectly indulgent is also mindblowing? Am not sure but you get enough reason for the crew here at What’s Korean Cinema? to examine two classic works, starting with Park Kwang-su’s 1988 drama Chilsu And Mansu and in the second half, Lee Myung-se’s 1999 hyper-stylized hunt for an assassin Nowhere To Hide is covered. Connection between the movies you ask? Well if you did, here’s the answer, the male leads are the same. With Kenny B, Hangul Celluloid‘s Paul Quinn and Rufus De Rham, Director of Operations/Associate Programmer at New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) and Editor in Chief at cineAWESOME!

Special thanks to Henrik Andersson for remastering the original recording.

The trio also have time to dive deep into views on Pang Ho-cheung’s Dream Home, Chow Yun-fat’s return to Hong Kong cinema gambling, Michael Wong and Hong Kong cinema profiles making Mainland movies.
