The Director’s Series 12: Kirk Wong – Taking Manhattan & Crime Story

tds12

He went abroad, to New York specifically to broaden his take on action (although it took 4 years between Gunmen and his next movie) and went into business with Jackie Chan for high profile action with the star taken down a notch and asked to act. Plus not so loving clashes, as opposed to the story on Gunmen, with said star. This is The Director’s Series on Kirk Wong’s Taking Manhattan and Crime Story.

pof165

Back in the saddle to discuss Hong Kong cinema classics (or not) but rather Hong Kong cinema’s prolific movies and filmmakers and the selection this is time Kenny B’s. We’ll be talking the box office smash and Best Picture winner at that year’s Hong Kong Film Awards: Jackie Chan’s Police Story (1985). Leave no glass or glass table unsmashed! Also in the second half, a personal favourite of Tsui Hark’s, the one he’s described as starting everything: 1984’s Shanghai Blues.
