It immediately dives into an intricate plot of cops and robbers already in full motion, where one drug bust in Jinhai, China, seamlessly folds into another greater narcotics pursuit. From here, the narrative billows out like the plume cloud of smoke seen in the first de-saturated frame…. [Drug War] paints Mainland China as a series of social and thematic roundabouts where citizens keep tripping over each other in glorious cinematic fashion. It’s pure bliss.
