Animated Neo-Noir from China
17 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Xiao Zhang is a good kid, but his girlfriend had botched plastic surgery and he needs money to get her another operation, so he robs Uncle Liu, a shady crime boss, of a million yuan. Uncle Liu, unsurprisingly, wants it back, so he sends enforcer/hit-man Skinny on Xiao Zhang's trail, but already things are complicated because other people have stumbled across the young man and know what's in his bag…. This is kind of a modern Chinese animated take on "Pulp Fiction," only told in a brisk 77 minutes, including a hallucinatory scene in which one of the couples after the money sing about moving to "Shangri- La." It's extremely recent, as it includes Trump's first press conference after his election win and references to Brexit, but the sort of gritty, down-on-its-luck industrial town in which the events of this single day take place is quite timeless, and the down-on-their-luck characters respond to "free money" in the way humans have since it was invented. Quirky, odd and inventive; if you get the chance, by all means see it!
