DIr. Pou-Soi Cheang - 2021 - 118m - Hong Kong - In Cantonese with English subtitles
A black-and-white nightmarish descent into an urban underbelly that might as well be hell on earth. After being paired with a rookie cop, veteran Cham Lau finds himself in pursuit of an elusive killer who’s targeting ‘lost’ women in the slums and dumping their bodies under masses of garbage. His efforts are further complicated when he crosses paths with a criminal who had once been one of his cases, but who know may provide invaluable help in the investigation and offer a chance for redemption. Think Se7en, Silence of the Lambs, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo run through the filter of Tetsuo: The Iron Man and you’ll be in the right ballpark.
"A tough, atmospheric slice of Cantonese noir that defiantly tips its hat to the great tradition of John Woo and Johnnie To." - Lee Marshall, Screen International
"An exceptional combination of elements that form great genre cinema, and one of the best action/crime thrillers we have seen recently." - Panos Kotzathanasis, Asian Movie Pulse
