An intriguing directorial experiment in which Tsui Hark, Ringo Lam and Johnnie To - in that order, though I wouldn't have guessed it - each direct a third of a film. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the experience is perhaps TOO full. Triangle starts as a heist movie, though oddly, the MacGuffin is an ancient burial vest made of gold, but the characters' lives get in the way. Simon Yam's character is haunted by his first wife's death, and his second is completely crazy AND sleeping with a crooked cop. That cop's informant is Louis Koo's character, a nervous taxi driver who also owes money to some gangsters. Sun Hong Lei plays the third partner, the one who brings the treasure to their attention. It all resolves in a massive shoot-out/comedy of errors, while the audience starts to put some of the pieces together. Funny, sentimental, action-packed, tense... I liked it, though it seemed a bit slow and random at the beginning, it is ultimately a fun ride, with a richness that unlocks once you've been through it.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
