Drug War


Special introduction by Boston Online Film Critics Association member Monica Castillo!

(2012) dir Johnnie To w/Louis Koo, Honglei Sun, Yi Huang [107 min; DCP]
A cop (Honglei) and a meth dealer turned informant (Koo) play a dangerous game of cat and mouse as the pair try to take down a powerful drug cartel. Long considered the master of the Hong Kong crime thriller, Johnnie To’s first mainland production eschews action mayhem in favor of atmosphere and a tightly-wound plot punctuated with impeccably choreographed bursts of startlingly realistic violence, in this intricate puzzle box of a film.
