This wild sub-Tarantino tale of low-life in an unlovely Chinese town is a bold, frequently hilarious dig at China’s enslavement to capitalism. A brilliant, biting delight that touches on topics both petty and profound, the pacing, cynical black humour and bone-dry wit makes this like no Chinese film you’ve ever seen.
