Episode 125 of the East Screen West Screen podcast. Talking films from Hong Kong to Hollywood and lots of stuff in between.
This week we head back into category III territory with the soft core Hong Kong film DUE WEST: OUR SEX JOURNEY [一路向西]. Joining Kevin and I as we unravel this latest entry into sexy-time cinema is Dr. Sean Tierney who discusses with us the ins and outs of the film and the return of the category III film to mainstream cinemas.
We also discuss Robert McKee’s comments that China needs more comedies, the withdrawal of THE FLOATING CITY [浮城] and news about the latest Godzilla film.
