Three Regie Johnnie To
A microcosm of the Milkyway Universe in action is the film’s showpiece, a dazzling slow-motion shootout, reportedly performed in real-time by the actors, requiring months of rehearsal. It’s a ballet of chaos set to a delicate pop fable (recalling a key moment in Office, a children’s choir singing the financial apocalypse), bullets and people and props floating through the air, exquisitely choreographed randomness.

Like an étude for dolly track and zoom lens, the suspense flick Three finds genre-hopping director Johnnie To exercising his mastery of visual style, perspective, and buildup… To is one of the purest directors working today, and he flourishes within Three’s self-imposed limits, folding and reorienting the space of the hospital using privacy curtains, swinging doors, and a constantly moving camera—in the process producing a rollickingly entertaining movie.

Confined largely to a hospital ward, the characters’ machinations are such that they give Mr. To the opportunity to exercise his mastery in synchronization to the fullest for many of the movie’s economical 90 minutes or so. Other patients, comical or desperate to a suitably entertaining measure, contribute to the mounting tension.
