Through striking mise en scène and a vitriolic script built on cruel twists of fate, Chen Xiaoming’s film about a professor desperate to live in a school district that will guarantee a good education for his daughter, delivers a surprisingly suspenseful critique of modern society.
Built around a devious scheme that serves as an indictment of avarice and materialism, the thrilling Money features rising star Ryu Jeon-yeol as a young aspiring stockbroker reaching for the golden ring, only to be shoved off his horse by an unscrupulous sociopath (Yoo Ji-tae, Oldboy).
Singular auteur Pang Ho-cheung strikes again with his brilliant combination of uproarious lowbrow gags and insightful humanism, for this freewheeling tale that’s both a wild comedy built around a desperate scavenger hunt for breast milk and a look at the profundity of true friendship
Set against the tradition where men seek atonement by submitting themselves to ritualized firecracker attacks (as effigies of the deity Han Dan), this eye-opening moral tale about an upstanding young man who commits a reckless act that ends in life-changing tragedy not only reveals unique aspects of Taiwanese culture but its complex psyche as well.
This unrepentant cinematic celebration of bar culture and the emotional wreckage that goes with it plays like a drunk version of Wong Kar Wai’s classics, but set in his birthplace of Shanghai, instead of Hong Kong. A stunningly bizarre journey that defies meaning, where lost souls never quite find themselves or each other.
