PTU








Director - Johnnie To

Genre - Crime/Thriller/Drama


A stylish thriller with film-noir elements from Johnnie To. The dark and moody atmosphere fills every scene with a sense of dread. However, in To's capable hands, the story of a group of patrolling cops is also wildly intense and provide an insightful peep into their minds and work. In fact, the dynamics of the Hong Kong police department is so intimately explored it's very likely To had exclusive access into their world. It's a unique blend of artistic bravado and genre-breaking coolness. To took a dangerous risk with this and it worked.

4 STARS!
