Film noir aesthetics drive this engrossing gangster thriller about a mid-level mobster in modern-day China. Just released from prison, Zhou Zenong gets into a deadly scrape with rival outlaws; in the aftermath, he encounters Liu Aiai, a sex worker with suspicious motives. Together they go on the run, fending off adversaries in a series of visually exhilarating set pieces, each darker and more daring than the last.

“It’s an exercise in pure cinema, an abstract painting of a crime story.”
-The Star
