BY Panos Kotzathanasis Mar 14, has been a very interesting year for the Chinese-speaking world allow me not to dwell on the politics of the matter. The collaborations between China and Hong Kong have resulted in a number of blockbusters, Chinese filmmakers continue to produce unique original if you prefer films, Hong Kong is trying to reinstate its former status with the help of governmental initiatives, while Taiwan keeps producing masterpieces of all genres. Here are ten of the best samples of the aforementioned, with a focus in diversity. Some of the films premiered in , but since they circulated mostly in , I took the liberty of including them. On the whole, this emerges as recommended viewing for any fan of the original or those who enjoy these over-the-top action set pieces, although fans who find fault here would be wise to heed caution with this one. With Prisoners Andrew Wong Kwok-huen, Hong Kong Andrew Wong Kwok-huen in his debut directs a film that functions as a very harsh critique of the correctional facilities in the country, particularly the ones for juvenile offenders, which are considered as stated in the movie much worse than those for the adults are.
Introducing Hong Kong's top raunchiest movies This seductive tale on the licentious sex life of a merchant references The Plum in the Golden Vase, a classic erotic literature from Ming Dynasty. It truly is a timeless piece of antique cinema that is as much about action and storyline as it is naughty bits. The movie boosted her popularity, and her rise to fame paved ways for other mainstream actresses to enter the soft porn market. The plot transgresses into jealously, lust and murder in this fairly soft-core film, but the sex scenes are perfectly executed and the duo beautifully captured. Yam has starred in other gigolo roles, but this is his best. While being investigated by an infatuated cop, she falls in love with a fellow female killer, who targets rapists and psychos.
