“We are not making a fetish of the past,” says Roger Garcia, executive director of the Hong Kong Intl Film Festival Society, and one of the co-founders of the fest 40 years ago.

The festival runs March 21 – April 4.

Yet there is notable pride in Garcia’s voice when he is able to announce a retrospective of films by Jet Tone Films, the production company founded and operated by the iconic Wong Kar-wai, pictured,which is 25 this year. “It is good to celebrate such a Hong Kong filmmaker in our 40th year,” says Garcia.

The Jet Tone showcase includes Wong’s “Chungking Express,” “Ashes of Time Redux,” an hour-long version of the 35-minute short “The Hand” that original appeared in the 2004 “Eros” anthology, and the 3D version of “The Grandmaster,” unspooling in Hong Kong for the first time.

3 March 2016 5:00 AM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

My guest for this month is David Blakeslee, and he’s joined me to discuss the film he chose for me, the 1994 romantic comedy-drama film Reality Bites. You can follow the show on Twitter @cinemagadfly.

Show notes:

As I mentioned in the intro, this show is joining up with the fine folks at CriterionCast This film doesn’t just feature Ben Stiller, he also directed it It was written by Helen Childress, who is supposedly working on a television version of the film Both David and I are nominally members of Generation X, although that can be argued for both of us as well This film also stars Ethan Hawke and Winona Ryder when they were painfully young The film bares some resemblance to my choice for the previous episode Chungking Express The film reminds me of the fiction of Mark Leyner And also of the essay E Unibus Pluram »

Last August, Arik Devens created the Cinema Gadfly podcast, an audio supplement to his Web site of the same name. As we do with the CriterionCast, the Cinema Gadfly podcast features discussions of the various releases in The Criterion Collection, but Arik complements each release with an episode discussing a non-Criterion film chosen by the guest.

I’m extremely pleased to announce that Arik will be adding his show to our network, syndicating it in our feeds.

Arik joined us on a recently on our Criterion Favorites of 2015 episode. Over the six months that he’s been producing his podcast, he’s released fourteen episodes, covering films such as Alphaville (featuring Serenity Caldwell), The Love Parade, and most recently Chungking Express with our own David Blakeslee.

Arik spoke at the Layers Conference in 2015, discussing what he loves about the Criterion Collection.

Over the years, our little network (Hyperbolic) has grown, »

Wong Kar-wai’s Jet Tone Films Ltd. will be honored at the upcoming Hong Kong Film Festival on March 21 to April 4, 2016 and some of the production company’s well-known movies will be screened during the course of the festival in spring.

Although a definitive list is yet to be released, you can look forward to some of these movies on the Hkiff screening.

Days of Being Wild

This 1990 drama stars Leslie Cheung, Maggie Cheung, Andy Lau, Carina Lau, Tony Leung Chiu-wai, and Jackie Cheung. Leslie Cheung plays Yuddy, a consummate playboy who breaks the heart of Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung) and Mimi (Carina Lau). The film casts light into the characters’ psychological drama, but has been labelled as frustrating by many audiences because it does not present a clear plot. This project started Wong Kar-wai’s collaboration with premier cinematographer Christopher Doyle »
