Infernal Affairs
Hello, you've reached Raito's movie review blog. Most of what you'll find here is reviews of Chinese movies, because that's pretty much all I watch. :'D

Raito [userpic]

This is apparently director Susie Au's debut and before she was a music video director. That definitely shows. There's also a lot of Wong Kar Wai going on here. But in all honesty? I liked it. It was entertaining, Zhou Xun was gorgeous, Daniel Wu was hot, and the whole thing was just nice to look at and attention-grabbing, not to mention keeping.

Essentially there's this superchick named Ming Ming (Zhou Xun). She has a thing for D (Wu), apparently some kind of mob enforcer. He wants to go to Harbin with 5 million. So she steals this money and a box from Brother Cat. In comes Tu, whom she hands the money to. And takes off running. He eventually meets another Zhou Xun in the form of an orange-haired girl named Nana. He thinks she's Ming Ming. Most of the movie is them running from Cat's cronies, with Ming Ming making occasional appearances to shoot her black balls at people. Eventually D comes back into it, and the true theme of the story is his story and what he wanted to go to Harbin for.

If that sounds convoluted, it kinda is, but I didn't find it as extremely so as some of the other reviews indicate. I found the style of the film extremely cool, and that by itself kept me into it. Zhou Xun did an excellent job in two roles and I was pretty surprised to realize that she was speaking Cantonese and not being dubbed. In fact, it seemed everyone was, which is weird because none of the stars are HK stars. But the director is, and I guess that's why.

Anyway, enough babbling. I really liked this movie.
