  OVER THE EDGE, Tsui Hark's Don't Play With Fire :
Triad bosses moonlighting as dance club DJs, adolescent boys who need just a nudge to plunge into a life of crime, crazed Vietnam veterans who sever limbs without hesitation, a teenage girl whose desire to die is trumped only by her passion to wreak havoc on society. This is the world of Don't Play With Fire, where bombs go off in movie theaters and cats rot on steel spikes.

  Interview Clement Cheng on Gallants :
We met Gallants director Clement Cheng at the London Terracotta Far East Film Festival for a one-to-one interview. Cheng is a warm and chatty character, so we decided not only to present the interview transcript below, but also to share edited transcripts of his masterclass and Q&A in the British capital.

  The Rise of Johnnie To :
(Johnnie To photo © Laurent Koffel www.laurentkoffel.com)
How did Johnnie To go from an almost unknown director in Western circles circa 2000 to one of the world’s most talked about international filmmakers today? This is the tale by Marie Jost of fanboys and cult cinema, film festivals and bitter debates waged by critics, and ultimately the embrace of Johnnie To by international film festival programmers and the academic community. Marie also analyzes how To talks about To in the Western media. As a complement, Thomas Podvin interviewed five persons living in Hong Kong, critics, academics and fanboys. They offer a Hong Kong perpective on Johnnie To and his work.
