Hilarious!
14 September 1998 | by Yongwook YooSee all my reviews

Gloomy apocalyptic testament of Hong Kong's capitalism. Homosexuality, drug-dealing, and street-showdown between the police and a psychic criminal show that Chinese views of value have been already raped by 100 year-domain of westernization regardless of their UNWANTED retro-annexation to main China.
