Episode 43: Wong Kar-wai

Damon Houx of ScreenCrush.com joins us to talk about the influential and original Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-wai. We briefly touch upon on his breakout film CHUNGKING EXPRESS (most of that discussion was lost due to technical difficulties) but the main film we focus on is the very beloved IN THE MOOD OF LOVE.  We definitely expand upon some more of his lesser known work as well.  In addition, Jim lept into Rian Johnson’s extremely entertaining LOOPER, Damon reviews the new sci-fi opus from Tom Tykwer and The Wachowski’s CLOUD ATLAS, and Patrick recently had a chance to see GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933 on the big screen.

In a couple weeks we will be talking with our friend & guest columnist Gabe Powers about the prolific genre-hopping director Mario Bava!  Please be sure to leave us a voicemail to play on the show as well at 224-366-9528. If you’re a movie blogger/podcaster and would like a guest spot on the show to talk about a filmmaker whose work you admire. Thanks again for listening and be sure to check out our updated upcoming schedule in the sidebar to see which directors we’ll be talking about soon!
