Review: Three, 2016, dir. Johnnie To


When you’re a master, you can get away with making “minor” movies because your status turns “minor” movies into “major” movies. Three isn’t the best To we’ve gotten in the last few years – that would be 2013’s stunning Drug War – but it’s still outstanding, an eighty or so minute masterclass in what a seasoned director can do with smart planning, tight control, and a clever whodunit (or “whosgunnadoit”) plot. Preserve the mystery! Read my ramblings over at Paste Magazine! (Don’t worry! I preserve the mystery there, too.)
