    PTU: Police Tactical Unit, an indy cop drama from Johnnie To and starring Simon Yam. Stylistically more European than Asian, it takes place during a single night (though filmed across three years, in between other projects) and is essentially about the elastic morals of the police force (which isn't technically corruption). Some around the living room found the music intrusive, and it did seem to jar, but the sound design remains interesting. Even in the quiet, we hear the rush of traffic, the buzzing of street lamps - the film does capture the true atmosphere of city at night very well. 4 years ago
