The epic drama and action of director John Woo carries us away this month as Alex and Jonathan talk about The Killer (1989), Hard Boiled (1992), Face/Off (1997), and Red Cliff (2008). We talk about his pioneering of the “Honorable Bloodshed” genre, his distinct stylistic and thematic trademarks, and his continuing legacy on many modern directors and content creators.
