80s Taiwanese Noir

Taiwan, films

This post started when someone shared this Letterboxd List of Taiwanese Noir Films from the 1980s on Bluesky. Then I read (in the description of that list) that most of the films came from a podcast on the same topic. Further research showed that the podcast itself was inspired by a 2005 film of the same name (台灣黑電影 in Chinese). You can see a 17 minute preview of the 60 minute film on YouTube. There is also a short article about the film saved in the internet archive. When I have time I hope to track down the original film and some of the films that inspired it, but for now I just wanted to bookmark everything so I could find it later.
