What are people saying?

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Believer

    Johnnie To's 2012 crime film is reinterpreted as yet another handsomely mounted Korean thriller and, in truth, "Believer" is one of the most stunningly photographed movies I've seen all year, and when the action erupts, it looks as stylish as you'd hope. But this has nothing on Johnnie To's violent poetry, or the way he was able to subvert the censors by using the Mainland's own oppressive atmosphere against it.
