Comeuppance | Chicago Reader


Derek Chiu (The Log) directed this quirky if overly cute 2000 fantasy about mob leaders being mysteriously poisoned. The culprit emerges early in the film, as Chiu cuts between a photo-lab technician with a vial of cyanide, a newspaper man whose column anticipates the murders, and a cop who gradually figures out the link between the two. The coincidences that drive the narrative become incredible at times, but the plot is less important than the delirious visual free associations connecting the three characters. In Cantonese with subtitles. 101 min.
