I just finished watching Protégé, and I have to say "wow".
I think it's a movie u either like it or hate it...It's very crude, very realistic down to earth pain. Many movies have talked abt drugs, and drug-dealers, but very few of them go so deep into it. You see it from the cops view, from the dealer's view, and from the addicts point of view...It gives u a huge perspective about it.
The movie gives u an image of "dirty", the appartments, the characters clothes, their look, everything around them looks dirty...I think that helps a lot with the atmosphere.
I have to say one thing..for those of u who have seen it: who do u believe? Louis Koo or Jingchu Zhang (does she have an english or cantonese name?)? I say it because both give the same story..but the viewer is taken into believeing her first. I am taking a class on gender studies, and we just read a story written by an arab-amerrican woman writer abt this issue ("The spiced chicken queen of Mickawequah"). I, of course, believe the story of the mother first...
One thing I didnt like is...Daniel Wu is obviously the main character in the movie, he has more minutes on screen, and he leads the story...then... ¿why does Andy is the main image in the poster? I mean, I do like Andy (that's obvious seeing my nickname) but...not fair this time.
