Mad Detective

Lend your eyes to this unconventional Asian police thriller, but keep your ears.


Rod Lott
A slaughtered pig hangs in the middle of a room, at which Inspector Bun (Lau Ching Wan, “Black Mask”) stabs. Then he zips himself up in a suitcase and asks a colleague to push him down a stairwell. Then he cuts off his own ear as a going-away present for his boss.
