The Films of Tsui Hark - Part 4

Filmmaker, critic, and author Scout Tafoya (@Honors_Zombie) joins us for the final episode of our Tsui Hark retrospective series. We look at how Tsui Hark interprets the cinema of John Woo, discuss if a tiger and shirtless Mickey Rourke is the secret to creating the perfect film, examine the acting prowess of Rob Schneider, and touch on Hark's interpretation of big, populist blockbusters.

THIS WEEK: A Better Tomorrow III: Love and Death in Saigon (1989), Double Team (1997), Knock Off (1998), and Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (2010)
