In this episode of Wuxia Weekend we talk about the film the Duel (2000), starring Andy Lau, Nick Cheung, Vicky Zhao, Kristy Yeung and Ekin Cheng.

I talk with Joel about the indescribable film, Street Trash. This 1987 film, directed by J. Michael Muro, started its own subgenre called Melt Movies. Correction: I mention a movie called "Valley of the Bamboo Dolls", I was incorrect, the title is "The Bamboo House of Dolls"
