Podcast on FIre's Taiwan Noir episode #29: Kung Fu Wonder Child and The Legend Of All Men Are Brothers

You may have noticed that, in recent episodes of Taiwan Noir, Ken and I have fallen down something of a K hole with these crazy taiwanese fantasy matrial arts films. But oh what a sweet, um, hole it's been. For example, this latest installment features Kung Fu Wonder Child, a revered classic of weird fu starring the Peach Kid herself, Lin Shao Lu. Alongside that we discuss the lithesomely titled The Legend of All Men are Brothers, which takes a recognized classic of Chinese literature and spins it into something that can accomodate a pair of jabbering puppet aliens, zombies, and a master swordsman in a souped up wheelchair. It's pretty weird, is what I'm saying.

If you want to join us in our happily delirious state, you can stream the episode here.
