What’s Korean Cinema? 11 – Barefooted Youth & Failan

wkc11

Kenny B and Paul Quinn of Hangul Celluloid dips into something old and classic as well as contemorary and classic. An examination of classic waves of Korean cinema and what they meant then and now. For this episode Kim Ki-duk’s 1964 “adolescent film” Barefooted Youth (1964) is discussed as well as Song Hae-sung’s classic drama Failan (2001), about an ever growing love between husband and wife that never met.

The original recording turned out quite rough so thanks to Henrik Andersson for restoring it to perfectably listenable quality.

Commentary On Fire 7: King Of Comedy (1999)

Stephen Chow’s King Of Comedy gets the Commentary on Fire treatment (also sans research) as Stoo and Ken tries to dissect this extreme mulit-mood experience coming from the king of comedy. Does anyone want to count how many times we get full frontal, little boy nudity in this one?

For those without the dvd, the commentary is available timed to video, via this playlist link or the video below:

podcast43

Sans Mike Banner, Stoo and Ken are joined by James Aylmore but before, Ken feels the need to spoil the entire plot of Scared Stiff (starring Eric Tsang, Miu Kiu-Wai and Chow Yun-Fat) so if you desperately want to avoid hearing about its ending (you should in some ways avoid the flick to tell you the truth), skip listening between 00:03:00 to the 00:20:00. We will then be back to discuss the latest development in the already old Edison Chen Sexy Photo Gate. Next development: You’re off the island, son!
