Production: Hong Kong, 1981
Director: Ang Saan
International English title: Angels With Golden Guns
A patchwork film, served up by Joseph Lai’s IFD production unit. The basic storyline of Ling Ye involves the capturing and imprisoning of women by slavers, and a bloody climactic uprising, but the film’s fabric is stitched together with random scenes of nude dancing, kung fu, genital torture, queer cruising, razor fights, sleazy sex, zombies, and the obligatory live animal cruelty (the slow decapitation of a squealing pig). The highlight is the prison cat-fight involving scores of girls on either side – possibly the biggest ever staged for cinema.
