Podcast On Fire 187: Face/Off & Hong Kong 1941

pof187

Podcast On Fire may focus on the known and the big guns out of Hong Kong cinema, classics or not, but no one’s demanding the programming to be strict or they’ll tune out so for this episode, based on the suggestion of our guest, we switch it up and head to part of the Hollywood filmography of a Hong Kong director. Namely John Woo and his third outing in America from 1997 called Face/Off. For our second review, we’re following among other things an actor on top of his game but not quite ready to be embraced by the public. Still, didn’t stop awards juries from giving Chow Yun-fat accolades for his performance in Leung Po-chih’s 1984 war drama Hong Kong 1941. With Kenny B and special guest Dr. Stan Glick.

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

This Week In Sleaze 21: Remains Of A Woman & Legal Innocence

twis21

Let’s talk fucking that happened for real once again! But also award winning fucking…again. Like on our The Untold Story & The Rapist episode, we’re heading into areas where Hong Kong filmmakers took real life crimes and depicted those stories on the big screen and once again, one of those efforts got an award. This episode Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal are therefore talking Clarence Fok’s Remains Of A Woman and Cha Chuen-yee’s Legal Innocence, and the real crime and court case movies are based on.

Editor’s note: Pardon the audio quality at points where we get loud, tried to reduce that as much as I could in post:

Peace Hotel (1995)

Plot (Optimum Asia): Chow (Hard Boiled, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) plays a legendary killer who slaughters his entire gang after the death of his wife. As penance, he opens the Peace Hotel, a sanctuary for criminals, seedy characters and anyone seeking safety. As long as patrons can make their way to the hotel, they are allowed to stay indefinitely and The Killer guarantees their protection.

After several peaceful years, an arrogant female thief (Cecilia Yip) telling outlandish lies barges into the hotel – with an angry posse hot on her heels. The posse accuses the woman of murdering their chief and vows to attack the hotel unless the woman gives herself up. Torn between his golden rule of never asking anyone to leave and his vow to protect the patrons of his haven, The Killer prepares for a blazing showdown. Read the rest of this entry »
