A Touch of Sin

By Jia Zhangke. I have no idea where I dug this up from. A touch of the ultraviolent, and some loose threads amongst these four almost-entirely freestanding tales. He's clearly been paying attention to Park Chan-Wook and the other Koreans, though his blood sprays and revenge arcs remain works-in-progress. The cinematography is very good; he makes a lot out of the air pollution of China.
