Go, Hong Kong! Messaged by H.K. student activist, Joshua Wong, upon his release the other day from prison - - and we should ALL be shouting the same!
The Chinese Communist Party of Beijing wants to tighten the noose around Hong Kong, their same strategy with their Nine-Dash Line and OBOR. A government which disappears its citizens, kidnaps foreign critics overseas and steals foreign technology whenever possible! After 2,000 years of authoritarian rule, it is historically time that the true and full spirit of the Chinese people finally be unleashed - - and that will only occur with the destruction of that authoritarian domination!

A dark cerebral Hong Kong drama or thriller with a Hitchcockian flavor, similar to the thread in Tom Cain's book, Accident Man, and an occasional theme in literature, staged accidents to assassinate, with Louis Koo as the thinking man's psychotic, and about the only character one might feel sympathy for is portrayed by the warmly attractive Michelle Ye . . . . but she is also one of the killers!
[When Sen. Paul Wellstone and some of his family died in a plane accident during the Bush Administration - - when he was working on a national collective bargaining bill - - I thought some were jumping to the conclusion that it was an assassination, until I read the court trial transcripts of the 20th hijacker, and realized that Michael Guess couldn't be called as a witness because he was the last-minute co-pilot aboard that airplane. Accidents, anyone???]

Region 3 but available in netfix net stream. As tj commented, the accidents created by a crew of assasins required absolute split second circumstances, until one of the "accident" had gone wrong due to "black swan" events. Entertaining for a low budget Hong Kong movie.
