There's a documentary approach to this film that gives it a raw and compelling energy. You are right there in the thick of things. At the same time this is disquieting. Many scenes are shot in front of a knowing - and sometimes unknowing - public. There are glances, even stares to camera. We see people lean and move out of the way. There aren't quite photo-bombs but at times you feel they are not far off. With this said, I think it's a film people should watch, but don't expect the polished production values and heroic abstractions of other South East Asian crime dramas.
