Diao Yinan delivers a definitive Chinese crime noir, in which the ravishing style and inventive staging form the substance. There’s the gangster on the run, the femme fatale at his side and the cops and bad guys trying to do them in. Film noir classics like Dark Passage, You Only Live Once and They Live By Night come to mind, most evidently in Diao’s pitch-black vision of a place where none of the characters will make it out unscathed.
