(kr) wrote: Wonderfully life drama about the relationship between a 12-year-old girl and her uncle. Superb, naturalistic performances by the three lead actors, Nick Stahl, Charlize Theron and AnnaSophia Robb, make us truly care about the people they are portraying and the things that are happening to them.In Sleepwalking the scenery and climate could not have been more dull, barren and depressing. There are boring, depressing highways that go for miles without any beautiful scenery. Every location in this film is flat, dreary and depressing. This added to the disturbing impact of the movie. The people who live in the area of the movie are colorless, dull and depressing.

The acting was nothing special and since these guys were associates with Uwe Boll, I thought that this was going to be really bad. The low budget look at times was detrimental to watching this, but this wasn't actually a horror movie per se, more dramatci than anything. Much better than I thought this was going to be.

I had only seen his more well known martial arts films like Hero, House Of Flying Daggers, and Curse Of The Golden Flower, but yet again I have been surprised by him in the form of this gangster film set in the 1930's in Shanghai. The film follows the point of view of a 14-year-old boy named Shuisheng, who is brought in by his uncle to be the servant of a woman named Bijou, who is a showgirl and the girlfriend of a mobster who is only known as "Boss." Though only a servant, Shuisheng gets to see some of the inner workings of the gangsters he works for and the life of the woman whom he serves, who treats him like garbage and is having secret affairs.Things begin to fall apart in this dangerous world of the Shanghai mafia when a trusted associate attempts to murder the "Boss" and kills some of his associates in the process. Now the "Boss" along with his girlfriend, trusted associates, and Shuisheng must go into hiding on a tiny island where things get progressively more dangerous as Bijou herself causes things to unravel, while her servant watches on.Shanghai Triad is a very subdued and quiet gangster film, rather than a bombastic and violence-filled one like most others. It's one that's all about characters, story, and making the viewer pay attention to all the little details as they watch. But, when it strikes, it leaves a powerful impact on the viewer.The acting is also quite good, especially from actress, Gong Li, who plays the troubled Bijou. Her character was the most complex and fascinating, especially when she begins revealing parts of her life before getting caught up in the criminal world. She really steals the show, though her fellow actors are no slouches either, and deliver fantastic performances as well.It's film that's all about story, characters, and little details for the viewer to process, which is why it gripped and engaged me so much from beginning to end. Shanghai Triad is easily one of the best crime films I've ever seen and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a film that is mostly story and character-driven.
