April 2007 - Queen of Kowloon (2000) is a melodramatic Clarence Fok Yiu-Leung potboiler, unseen by most people. Schmaltzy screenplay, by any cultural standard you might wish to apply, is smartly crafted by Sharon Hui Sa-Long, crammed full of interesting characters doing disturbing things. The director would have achieved better results by using a softer touch. One of the last movies I saw at the old Music Palace, it has a small, special place in my heart.
