271) The Detective (2007) [“C+ jing taam” (original title)]
A private detective is drawn into a complex murder mystery when he is hired to track down a missing young woman.
7/10 – A very cool little movie out of Hong Kong. One of those where once the detective gets embroiled in the investigation, the investigation starts to unravel around him in a sea of paranoia and intrigue. However, throughout the entire film you will be left puzzled. There isn’t even the slightest hint as to what is going on until right at the end, and the conclusion is more than satisfying. It is raw, well produced, gritty and shot through this odd yellowy tint that gives it a very unique feel. If you can track it down, give it a go.
