Taiwan Noir 23: The Fantasy Of Deer Warrior & Double Vision

taiwannoir23

Once upon a time there was a big forest and in it sat two podcasters. One found a movie based on a fairy tale about deers fighting wolves (and there’s also exotic dancing) and the other found a movie where West meets East mixed with a possibly supernatural serial killer plotting. Far apart in genre and production year, Taiwan Noir takes a look at 1961’s The Fantasy Of Deer Warrior and in the second half, Chen Kuo-fu’s Double Vision starring Tony Leung and David Morse.
