    Six Days (2002)
    Six Days (2002) - Short Film
    Wong distills DJ Shadow's war song into the trippiest love-is-a-battlefield metaphor ever. It's a seamless reduction of Wong's signature tics and tricks to 3 ½ sublime minutes: languorous slow-mo; seductive, deeply rhythmic cutting patterns; oversaturated color and tactile surfaces, plus his first nod toward martial arts since "Ashes of Time".

    Savior of the Soul (1991)
    A graying black-clad swordsman slays palace guards, as he flies through the air to an uncertain purpose. Centuries (or is it days?) later, gun-toting, Armani-clad super policemen -- Hong Kong's Saviours -- are devastated by a cloaked assassin. Kinetic medieval fantasy; overstructured, outgunned urban nightmare. And that's only the first ten minutes! A highly entertaining, eye-popping genre bender in every way. (imdb)

    The Haunted Cop Shop (1987)
    It's the first in a string of "spooky police" films -- this case pits a precinct against a horde of vampiric foes on the day of "The Feast of the Hungry Ghosts," complete with dire warning from an ex-cop monk. Surprisingly creepy, often hilarious and sometimes wildly tasteless, this 1987 oddity feels like a better version of the Joe Piscopo vehicle Dead Heat with a healthy dose of Eastern action mayhem.
