This Week In Sleaze 38: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Love To Kill & The Underground Banker

twis38

Let’s talk some fucking living next door to Dr. Lamb! One actor that took roles left and right, evolved his craft and did not in some cases (by his own admission) was Anthony Wong and he was as much of a mainstay in mainstream, lower rated Hong Kong cinema as in Category III movies. In this episode we take a look at him as an abusive husband in the Kirk Wong produced Love To Kill from 1993 and as a husband having troubles with local loan sharks and living next door to Dr.Lamb in the Wong Jing production The Underground Banker.

This Week In Sleaze 34: Daughter Of Darkness I & II

twis34

Let’s talk some fucking domestic abuse, syphilis and coat hanger abortion. Director Ivan Lai unleashed the unforgiving, foul, vile, inappropriately comedic (but genius) dual tale where one is about abuse and another about impotency, coat hangers and another evil family. Cinema audiences actually came out in droves to the tale of Lily Chung and her family bullying, degrading and raping the crap out of her…played by on screen animal William Ho. Anthony Wong is the goofy cop investigating all this and an almost unrelated reprise happened in 1994 with a new cast including Red To Kill‘s Ben Ng.

tds13

That was quick, seems we were just talking about the start of Kirk Wong’s career and now we’re at what is presently his last Hong Kong productions before a short US stint. Two 1994 cop actioners end it all. First a team up with actor/producer/movie cop Danny Lee vs Anthony Wong’s robber and girlfriend and from the same year, Anthony’s LP loving cop co-operates with the Mainland police force to bring down a violent robber. This is therefore The Director’s Series 13 on Kirk Wong’s Organized Crime & Triad Bureau and Rock N’ Roll Cop, with Kenny B and Tom K-W
