Excellent and evocative
29 September 2018 | by analoguebubblebathSee all my reviews

Downbeat and moody early '80s crime drama. Shot in London's grimy docklands, now regenerated. A snapshot of a long gone era. Great performance from David Yip and other assorted eastenders. The Chinese people he interacts with are predictably cruel, as was the style back then.Excellent and evocative
