Podcast On Fire 108: The Audition Tapes Part 3

Dusting off a third (and final?) audition tape from the Podcast On Fire Network vaults, friend and veteran (or elder statesman) of the show Phil Gillon (Eastern Film Fans.co.uk) has agreed to join the network and this was introductury chat with Ken. Covering his journey into Asian film obsession and the creation of his site, also included are network updates covering the latest The Director’s Series and what’s in the store for the future. Insanity also strikes since Phil G rewatched a movie before the show as well… on his way to reaching viewing number 13.

The Director’s Series 1: One Way Only (1981) & Brothers From The Walled City (1982)

Welcome to the debut of The Director’s Series where we try and expand your knowledge (if you want it that is) of directors you may love via only one movie, may love via multiple movies but don’t know the name to put next to that love. Starting with Nam Nai-choi, the director of Story Of Ricky, Ken and David go back to the very beginning and examines Nam’s first two movies as director (at Shaw Brothers to boot). Expect talks of Nam himself, Danny Lee, Chin Siu-ho, Phillip Ko and Johnny Wang. We’ve also added 5 minutes of deleted conversation in the MEMBERS ONLY section of our forum!
