  1. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film Life Without Principle

    Could this be the silliest movie on financial crisis?

  2. rado's rating of the film Life Without Principle

    Always invest in HK master Johnnie To, risk-free. This is a wicked suspenseful drama about finance with a generous serving of noir shadows, a subtle sense of humour and compassion for humanity faded between banknotes and numbers. Robert Altman would approve. Bonus: the tight situations are emphasized by the sticky Kowloon streets atmosphere which has never been more palpable on screen.

  3. Jonathan Kan's rating of the film Life Without Principle

    If this is a cautionary tale, why unleash a deus ex machina ending?

  4. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Life Without Principle

  6. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Life Without Principle

    The global financial crisis causes Hong Kong citizens from all walks of life to make morally dubious choices out of both selfishness and self preservation in Johnnie To's blistering drama. From bank tellers to policemen to gangsters, the crisis touches everyone,and the choices they make resonate far past themselves in ways they could never suspect. Timely and sobering filmmaking.

  7. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Life Without Principle

    In Hong Kong, a bank teller reluctantly financial adviser, a career criminal, and a police inspector attempt to weather, navigate, survive, and maybe even benefit from a crisis in the financial markets. A well made "street level" experience that would make a fine double feature with the penthouse level "Margin Call".

  8. Glim Ho's rating of the film Life Without Principle

    蝗虫与狗的时代,谁不是被随便踩踏鄙视的人群

  9. Cinematic's rating of the film Life Without Principle

    I think it's the worst film To has ever done, frustratingly repetitive and tensionless.

  10. Sean's rating of the film Life Without Principle

    I enjoyed this film from director Johnnie To. 3 parallel stories about money during a worldwide economic crisis and how they connect, sometimes very funny and other times intense.
