The Films of Johnnie To - Part 2

This week, we're joined by Ryan Swen (The Film Stage, Reverse Shot, Catalyst and Witness) and taking a detour away from Johnnie To action flicks to look at how To's style translates to comedy, romance, and non-traditional genre films. Prepare to get deeply emotionally invested in a frog and have a man in a rubber muscle suit bring you tears. J. To isn't fuckin' around.

THIS WEEK: Running on Karma (2003), Sparrow (2008), Don't Go Breaking My Heart (2011), Romancing In Thin Air (2012)
