Tense, insightful, politically pissy, (Anti-Cultural Revolution, Anti-Hong Kong Capitalism, Anti-American involvement in Vietnam). Could play with any 70's escape/thriller/adventure films. Well made by female HK director Tang Shu Shuen, known best for her feudal period classic, The Arch (1968). Rather gritty and dour. Try it.
