The Eye    (2002)
The Eye by the Pang brothers (Danny and Oxide) is a more typical Chinese ghost story in essence than Inner Sense. Despite a Pan-Asian cast and crew, The Eye stands definitively as a true HK movie in spirit. The story coming from cultural Chinese beliefs on ghosts and the Pang Bros. mise-en-scene, framing and editing confirm its filiation. It's a must seen for three main reasons: an amazing and mature performance by Malaysian born/ Singapore based newcomer Angelica Li Sin-je (Princess d, Betelnut Beauty), a really thrilling atmosphere all along and a bold and stunning final action scene which creates this sense of surprise you'd expect from a HK movie.
