They Shot Pictures Ep#32: Lau Kar-leung


Sean is joined by Matt Lynch and CJ Roy to talk about Hong Kong director Lau Kar-leung, the man behind many of the greatest kung fu films of the Shaw Brothers era. They cover pretty much his whole career, with many digressions on martial arts cinema in general, but focus especially on three of his best films: Dirty Ho (1979), My Young Auntie (1981) and Eight-Diagram Pole Fighter (1984).
Sean writes about all things film on this here blog and is also on twitter @TheEndofCinema.

CJ can be found in Canada, at The Vulgar Cinema and on twitter @CJRoy89.
