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 33: Tightie Whitie Theatre – The Twist & Crazy Love For You

twis33

Let’s talk some fucking justice…Danny Lee style. It’s one of the fascinations of Danny Lee’s cop movies, Cat III or not, when he clearly muses on how justice is achieved, how information is squeezed out of suspects and there’s probably half a dozen movies where he or his OCTB gang are pretty much torturing their victims. Be it in Organized Crime & Triad Bureau, The Untold Story and here in his own directed The Twist where Simon Yam gets the hose.  Also, Simon Yam is a nutter, psycho AND stalker in Crazy Love For You where he may or may not get his dicky shot off.
