Tribeca 2011: Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (Di Renjie)

The 10th Tribeca Film Festival begins and Tsui Hark delivers a gonzo period chop-socker that should be oh so much more than it is.

Time and Tide (Seunlau ngaklau) (2000)

Together with co-cinematographers Ko Chiu Lam and Herman Yau, Hark here develops a peculiar hybrid of corny romance, bad fx (the burning building effect is straight-up lame), and seriously dynamic action scenes, all enhanced by fashionably jaggedy editing, timelapse speediness, slow motion, and ridiculous (in the good way) camera angles.
