This Week In Sleaze 27: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Mad Stylist & Fatal Love

twis27

Let’s talk some fucking Michael Wong. Where do you go after a rough episode historical contents-wise (we talked Men Behind The Sun last episode) to get comfortable and happy again. Some look at puppies doing cute things on the internet. We watch and talk Michael Wong movies and there are a fair few Category III movies the Wongster graced with his presence. So let’s keep it simple this episode and talk the following: Mad Stylist from 1997 and Fatal Love from 1993. Karaoke good time at one hand, pitch black in the other. Also, Al Pacino stops by.

Note that the first 18 minutes were recorded by Joshua as backup as my local file got corrupted. Hence a difference in audio, for the better,  after the break. /Ken

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.
