After starring in countless commercial romances, Brigitte Lin explored the darker side of love in the appropriatelytitled Love Massacre. Set in San Francisco, the film relentlessly shifts genres – from drama to romance to thriller to slasher – as it follows Ivy (Lin), a beautiful student who has an affair with a married man, only to discover that he isn’t who he seems. Patrick Tam channels European art films and American thrillers for his unsettling and visually-striking New Wave gem.
