Taiwan Noir 19: Feng Shen Bang

tn19The tale of a Chinese protection deity isn’t as dry as it may sound as the story has cinematic colours galore so we’re taking a look at one such literary adaptation from Taiwan: Feng Shen Bang.

Taiwan Noir 16: Night Orchid & The Greatest Plot

tn16

Because we had fun discussing colourful Wuxia pian last time (when The Ghost Hill was reviewed), we jump ahead a decade to Night Orchid by Chang Peng-yi, starring Adam Cheng and Brigitte Lin. Memorable color for the genre? We’ll see. Also, we get very sparse feedback regardless of the show on the network but when a listener request is put forth towards Taiwan Noir… a specialized, niche show, we listen. Andrew in California wrote in and told us of a movie that kind of scared him as a child. Through surreal scenes, spooky sound design, eerie music but largely, we’re also dealing with a kung fu movie here with hopefully, because it is called that, The Greatest Plot.

Taiwan Noir 15: The Ghost Hill & The Fly Dragon Mountain

tn15

It’s time Taiwan Noir took a step back to Taiwan cinema swordplay or Wuxia pian. They had some juice, some fuel that could stack up with what Shaw Brothers and Golden Harvest were doing despite being the little kid in terms of size of industry and maybe even means. So Kenny B and Todd Stadtman therefore talk Ting Shan-hsi’s The Ghost Hill and Chen Hung-min’s The Fly Dragon Mountain for this episode.
