I Know That Face Jun Kunimura + Sebastián Lelio, director of The Wonder
This week's I Know That Face episode is a packed one, beginning with Andrew and Stephen looking at the career of a workhorse of an actor. Jun Kunimura hasn't taken a year off since 1991 and the effort shows in his work with Ridley Scott, Quentin Tarantino, John Woo, Takashi Miike, Takeshi Kitano and Na Hong-jin. Best known in the west as the beheaded Boss Tanaka in Kill Bill Vol. 1, the Japanese actor made his bones in lean and mean horrors and crime thrillers like Audition, Ichi the Killer, Outrage and Manhunt. Meanwhile, his most famous and well-rounded recent role as the mysterious Japanese stranger in the South Korean horror epic The Wailing won him the Best Supporting Actor and Popular Star awards at the Blue Dragon Awards, making him the first non-Korean to do so. Also in the episode, Stephen interviews director Sebastián Lelio about his new Irish-set mystery drama The Wonder starring Florence Pugh. It's out in Irish cinemas now before it will receive a Netflix release on 16 November.
