The Wild Goose Lake
Critic's Choice Spotlight: Jordan Raup • Crime, Drama, Thriller
When small-time mob leader Zhou Zenong (Hu Ge) accidentally kills a cop, a dead-or-alive bounty is placed on his head, forcing him on the lam from both the police as well as dangerous gangsters out for the reward. Hiding out at the Wild Goose Lake, Zhou becomes entangled with a beautiful, enigmatic woman (Gwei Lun Mei), who has mysterious intentions of her own.
From the director of BLACK COAL, THIN ICE and featuring gorgeous, neon-drenched cinematography coupled with bursts of shocking, expertly choreographed action, THE WILD GOOSE LAKE is “spellbinding” (Rolling Stone), “brilliant" (Indiewire) and “downright Hitchcockian” (AV Club).
