The Director’s Series 24: Ringo Lam – Burning Paradise

It’s the Red Lotus Clan burning down the Shaolin monastery and trapping the monks in the underground Red Lotus Temple. Fong Sai Yuk takes center stage and fights back. All done under the watchful eye of producer Tsui Hark while Ringo flexes his creative muscles trying to make a dent in the 90s wave of kung fu and swordplay. This is The Director’s Series 24 on Ringo Lam’s Burning Paradise. With Kenny B and Tom K-W.

Podcast on Fire 122: Victim

No Hitler-Cast, i.e. Ken doing a solo POF this week as Hong Kong Dave returns! Together with Kenny B, there’s a lengthy discussion on John Woo’s Heroes Shed No Tears, tangents on State of Grace and The Raid before the main subject of this week takes center stage: Ringo Lam’s possibly supernatural cop flick Victim starring Lau Ching-wan and Tony Leung Ka-fai.
