Triad Election (2007)

Johnny To's superb, graceful new Triad Election actually has quite a bit in common with Francis Coppola's Godfather trilogy, and so anyone even remotely familiar with that should be able to follow it pretty clearly. Here it is: Lok (Simon Yam) is the current Chairman of Wo Shing Triad Society in Hong Kong. Each Chairman is elected and serves for two years. Lok's time is running out and he wishes to serve another term. Meanwhile, Jimmy (Louis Koo), has become rich from his Triad business connections, mainly selling bootleg videos. He wishes to move into legitimate business, and has a high-priced highway deal all set up. But he's arrested, and his ability to do business in Mainland China is taken away. Only the Triad Chairman has enough power to trade favors with the cops and reinstate that privilege. So Jimmy has no choice but to run for Chairman. read more...

Drug War (2013)

I've been following director Johnnie To's career for some time now, since I first saw and loved The Heroic Trio (1993). I have not seen all of his movies, as they don't often show up here in the States, and he tends to make them faster than I can find them. But I have seen a fair number, including the superb Election (2005), Triad Election (2006), and Exiled (2006). Yet the jaw-dropping new Drug War ups the ante. It's the best To film I've seen since The Heroic Trio. read more...

Bringing Out the Dead (1999)

Martin Scorsese's new movie is both amazing and darkly hilarious. It chronicles a few days in the life of an exhausted, haunted ambulance driver (Nicolas Cage) in his world of flashing lights, sirens, ghosts, and nightmares. He's in a slump; he hasn't saved a life in weeks. He's tormented by visions of an 18-year-old girl named Rose whom he failed to save. He calls himself a "grief mop." read more...

Exiled (2007)

After Johnny To's superb, Godfather-like Triad Election comes this equally amazing, but altogether different gangster film, much closer to a John Woo-like exploration of male bonding and astonishing, violent standoffs. read more...

Born to Kill (1947)

Robert Wise's Born to Kill is a true film noir. Many other films get lumped into this genre, but an honest-to-goodness film noir is marked by a hero who, influenced either by wealth or by sex, allows himself to be drawn into the underworld, never to return. If a movie has a happy ending, it's not the real thing. read more...
