    Deer Hunter, Hong Kong style. John Woo at his most nihilistic.

    A Better Tomorrow III: Love and Death in Saigon

    ★★★★

    Hongkong gun-fu goes to Vietnam to show it as a broken heart of both East Asia and South East Asia. Noir-ish and romantic. Surprisingly, it's not the Chow Yun-fat's character who is the coolest here, it's Anita Mui's wonderful femme fatale / super-heroine kicking asses of dozens of gangsters / soldiers (not much difference!). Great socio-political commentary too.

    ★★★★

    Dreams growing bigger and bigger and then devouring reality. Brilliant concept, brilliant construction. Lynch-ish flavour here and there. Hard to believe it was supposed to be a Nightmare on Elm Street rip-off (it's way more interesting than the Craven classic, if you ask me).
