About Jon Jung

Jon Jung (aka “Coffin Jon”) is the producer and host of the VCinema podcast and editor-in-chief of the VCinema blog. He is an avid movie fan who specializes in Japanese cinema, but enjoys everything from artsy high-brow to mega-billion blockbusters to straight-to-video turds. As an Asian-American, he got the best of all cinematic worlds as a child by receiving mega-doses of Ozu, Bruce Lee, Kamen Rider, and American drive-in movies in addition to a steady diet of punk rock, Japanese literature, and Buddhism. He spent six years in Japan as an English teacher and translator. In 2004, he returned to the United States to complete his Masters in Language Education and continue his career as a language educator and cultural anthropologist with a focus on language policy and language shift. Jon is a former Myrle Clark Award recipient for excellence in creative writing and has contributed to World Film Locations: Tokyo (Intellect, 2011).

Episode 20: Fulltime Killer

Our review of Johnnie To’s 2001 actioneer Fulltime Killer in this episode gets so meta that you’ll think you’re reading it off the legs of an ant in a Salvador Dali painting.  Also included is our second straight “Let’s Get Formsprung” mini-segment in which we get in the director’s chair and talk about films we’d like to see made as well as plenty and puh-lenty of other film talk.
