For once, we’re talking AVAILABLE Taiwanese cinema. It can be prolific, important aaaaand promptly lost. But since it has been part of the discussion, somewhat available before but now to the masses via a shiny new restoration, Taiwan Noir tackles a high profile Taiwanese movie for once: King Hu’s Dragon Inn from 1967.

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.
