A must-see for any HK movie fan. On seeing it again, five years after the first time, I'd forgotten just how stylish and well-made it is. And how outrageously funny as well. And, the first time, I'd missed the numerous references to Hitchcock's "Vertigo". Wong Jing at his brilliant best. See it .... and die !

BEWARE : There are two different edits of this film. The STAR-TV version of 1995 runs more than ten minutes shorter than the cinema release. All the sex scenes and most of the nudity are removed (tsk tsk), as is some of the more gruesome dialogue about penis removal and (this left me flabbergasted) a different ending is inserted. I won't spoil it, but the difference is similar to that between the initial release and the director's cut of Blade Runner.
