Top Banana Club sounds like either really sketchy pornography, or some sort of intense, ultra dialog heavy political thriller with bursts of violence in the guise of A Better Tomorrow and Bullet In The Head. Shot in the style of classy movies like The Piano and The English Patient.

I need to see it.

Thanks! I didn't even realize until I saw this thread. Now that I think of it, it only seems appropriate that an update to Top Banana Club was a landmark one, since that disc in particular was my first LD watch after a pause of several years.

I'm sad to disappoint you, but it's a pretty entertaining quirky comedy about the hosts and listeners of a call-in radio show. The protagonists of the listeners' stories are played by the same actors as the hosts. They also do PSAs in between. It's hilarious.

Review from imdb....

Anthony Wong and his regulars make a movie!
Top Banana Club (1996) was a film made by Anthony Wong and his buddies (Dayo Wong, Esther Kwan, Bobby Yip etc..). The story is about a popular Hong Kong radio show and their lives and stories about the three hosts, the movie also re-enacts the stories told to the hosts by the air on air guests. Anthony Wong mentioned about how badly Hong Kong society and entertainment treats "outsiders" (such as Gays and Alternative people). He tries to include deep messages as well as bizarre humor. Too bad this movie didn't make money or is not popular enough to warrant a re-release on either DVD or VCD. I enjoyed this movie as well as the funny sketches and music from Anthony Wong's rock band. If you're a fan of Anthony Wong then you'll get a kick out of this movie. Another film based on the Top Banana Club was produced around the same time.


See the LD has English subtitles, really would like to see this one now.
