We're continuing our Tsui Hark retrospective by returning to his early career to see how he transitioned from making a nihilistic masterpiece about kids blowing things up for fun to producing gorgeous post-war period romances and earning the title of the "Hong Kong Spielberg."
Oh and then we just jump to his return to HK filmmaking in 2000 after a brief stint in America because it's our podcast and we'll do whatever the hell we want.
THIS WEEK: Dangerous Encounters of the First Kind (1980), Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain (1983), Shanghai Blues (1984), and Time and Tide (2000)
