Storyline

Na Dow carries out his drug-delivering routine by taking a cab down south and returning in the same cab on the same day. One day he reluctantly gets into a shabby taxi driven by the carefree, innocent Xu, who came to Taiwan more than 20 years ago and somehow decided to stay. Na Dow's plan to reform himself and Xu's wish for a peaceful life take a wrong turn when they become the target of a mob attack. The drugs and the money are gone, and both Na Dow and Xu are held hostage in the trunk of a car.

Another great one from Mong-Hong Chung
23 August 2017 | by ecce-platypusSee all my reviews

I can't spell his name but this director is absolutely fascinating. I have seen only two of his movies (Soul and Godspeed) and can't find the earlier ones, but the last two are magnificent works. This one, Godspeed, let's say this is my free interpretation, is an answer to Nicholas W. Refn's Only God Forgives.

It has the same Asian actor, and a couple of other things that made me think of Refn. But this is not in any way some copy of OGF. Quite the contrary, it seems like a critique, or at least a different perspective on life itself. A different "godspeed" and different forgiveness.

It is very contemplative but at the same time very funny. The dramatic parts are excellent, no cheap pathetic here, and God knows contemporary movies are full of them. Can't wait for Mong-Hong Chung's next film or at least to find the old ones!

To bad so little attention he gets, while some other Asian idiots are all over the place. Oh, well, it's not that much different in Europe, where people praise some Nymphomaniacs or something. Godspeed is real stuff.
