Johnnie To

I was wasting time, surfin' the 'net and stumbled across an article about my favorite movie director's latest release.
Inventing new ways to maim, kill, or double-cross: It's a responsibility that has long vexed 58-year-old director and producer Johnnie To. On the surface, his movies are consistent with the tradition that produced him. Like all the rest, they are stories of loyalty and brotherhood featuring obsessive, hunch-driven cops and swaggering triad gang members and always ending with bodies scattered everywhere, perforated with bullet holes.
 -Grantland (article is mediocre)
Except for "Heroic Trio,"  I recommend watching everything from Johnnie To.

Don't watch any movie from China, or Hong Kong, dubbed.  They are all terrible dubbed, watch them subtitled.

Fulltime Killer (full movie):

from the linked article:
In 2015, To plans to release the third installment of Election, his classic meditation on triad bureaucracy.


My favorite movies:
  • The Good, The Bad, The Weird
  • Exiled (from Johnnie To)
  • Cowboy Bebop
  • Once Upon A Time in the West
