Movie #32 Mad Detective

(2008, Hong Kong, d. Johnnie To & Wai Ka-Fai)

Nominated for a Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, this very original concept was undermined by an underwhelming. What could have been one of the most original concepts in film turned into a merely very creative idea executed decently. Overall, the film was intriguing. It borrowed a lot from Kurosawa’s Stray Dog and had some very interesting visual moments.
