Podcast On Fire 96: Nothing To Be Snorted At

Phil Gillon of Eastern Film joins Stoo and Ken for what will sound like a cocaine fueled, fun time (ironically enough, Phil’s last guest spot was on episode 89: Bong Bak) as the trio rolls through network updates, why A Better Tomorrow 3 is underrated, why Spirited Away still chokes Stoo up and why the reputation Takashi Miike’s 13 Assassins is very much deserved! Also listener questions and ‘Make Ken Watch A (dark Japanese) Film’ which this week is the 1969 movie Boy.  All complete wih jingles!
