Here’s a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Tie-ins, a monthly series where we take a classic movie and connect it to a film discussed on our main show. This month we are tying into the A-Woo-Gust series on our regular show by tackling arguable the biggest success in John Woo’s career and the movie which paved the way for his arrival in Hollywood – Hard Boiled. Over the course of our chat you will hear us talk about Woo’s approach to violence, whether it is a personal movie in any respect, the unhinged magic of Hong Kong cinema, the idea of remaking this movie in Hollywood and whether it would look any good and much, much more!
