Johnnie To Hong Kong, 2005

Jake Cole's rating of the film Election

To hilariously subverts the gangster genre like never before by making the mob hold elections, then building out the usual violence from this act of civilized behavior to make the dim, brutal scheming that much more absurd and repugnant. To moves so fleetly that I couldn't tell where this stopped being funny, though, and when it started to be abhorrent.
