Breaking News

Johnnie To Hong Kong, 2004

Expired

Our next flamboyant Johnnie To thriller finds him solo in the director’s seat, less silly and more politically prickly. Opening with one of cinema’s greatest shots—a one-take, ten minute action scene, the craned camera gymnastically following the bullets—cops, robbers and the media are all skewered.

Johnnie To, Wai Ka-Fai Hong Kong, 2001

Expired

Two of Hong Kong master Johnnie To’s (Election, Drug War) most stylish thrillers back-to-back!
