Podcast On Fire 179: The Way Of The Dragon & The Killer

pof179

Kenny B and Phil G talk the directorial debut of a man with a vision cut short in the form of Bruce Lee’s The Way Of The Dragon from 1972 and the movie that you point to being the John Woo movie to check out if you want to see what the world also saw in the form of The Killer from 1989.

The original recording on Phil’s side came out both noisy and a bit low so I tried to remaster the sound to listenable levels. That’s why you hear varying quality on Phil’s side throughout. /Ken
