mon mon mon Monsters (Bao Gao, Lao Shi! Guai, Guai, Guai, Guai, Guai Wu!)

  •   Giddens Ko
  •   Taiwan
  •   After Dark

Synopsis

Teenage bullies pluck a man-eating beastie from the gutters of Taipei, torturing the creature and using its powers to wreak havoc on their peers. Then along comes the monster’s big sis, who ruthlessly hunts down the miscreants, leaving a trail of carnage in her wake. Ko’s second feature is a bloody, pitch-black satire that takes a wild, ravenous bite out of the YA genre.

Have a Nice Day (Hao ji le)

  •   Jian Liu
  •   China
  •   Spotlight: International Film Noir, World Cinema

Synopsis

In Southern China, driver Xiao Zhang steals one million yen from his mobster boss to finance a trip to South Korea for a girlfriend who needs to have a botched cosmetic surgery repaired. That ill-considered act sets into motion a violent series of events leading to an electrifying climax in Liu’s animated black comedy, all of it rendered in a precise, artful comic book palette and punctuated with pop music.
