Hong Kong director Herman Yau (filmography) has a new film opening this week, Split Second Murders[死神傻了]. Though the massive casting of neophyte stars has me a bit wary, I am still excited to see this one. Personally, I have always admired director Yau’s ability as a filmmaker to create substance in a rapidly declining market. In short, he has a keen knack for making more with less than any other local director working currently. And while his films may lack the higher end polish of some of his contemporaries, his works are often more critical of local culture and subculture (One of my own personal favorites is his film Herbal Tea [男上女下 – 2004]).
You can take a look at the trailer below (note: no subs on this one).
