The Director’s Series 16: David Chiang – Mr. Handsome

tds16

We continue analyzing the filmography of martial arts superstar turned director David Chiang and past wacky Wuxia parody and comedy slasher hybrids, we find Chiang in a latter 80s half of Hong Kong cinema. Producing frequently and more even-termpered as he lets Bill Tung and Lydia Shum mostly lead his straightly made frames. If that’s a good thing or not, find out as we take a look at David Chiang’s Mr. Handsome.

Podcast On Fire 184: The Dynasty Report – Overheard 3, Z Storm & The Great Hypnotist

01

Let’s get experimental! Seeing as I enjoy the company of my co-host so much and he’s got an advantage of following current Hong Kong cinema due to being IN Hong Kong (and sits on a wealth of knowledge about its current status, its players), I thought this episode would serve as an experiment, a test run of me, Kenny B, interviewing my guest about some of the latest releases. Meaning I haven’t had a chance to see, I couldn’t see nor wanted to see possibly but hey, at least the spotlight is away from me for once and onto Paul Fox. Who brings us his Hong Kong cinema June and July picks in the form of Overheard 3, Z Storm and The Great Hypnotist. Michael Wong gets mentioned many times.
