Too Many Ways To Be No.1

Yi ge zi tou de dan sheng

Directed by Wai Ka-Fai
Hong Kong, 1997
Action, Comedy, Crime


This arty triad flick from Wai Ka-Fai and Johnnie To is as good as genre pictures get in this era. Lau Ching-Wan is Kau, a small potato in the triad world who must make a fateful decision to discover who he is. With that decision, his life can diverge in two paths, each leading to an ultimate fate.
