ELECTION (2005)

A film by Johnnie To.
Cast : Louis Koo, Suet Lam, Tony Leung Ka Fai

Rival gang leaders are locked in a struggle to become the new chairman of Hong Kong’s Triad society. Election is severely interesting on the basis of it being a pure triad film. It really is a stunning and rich portrayal of blood ties, favours and allegiances within the crime world. The power struggles and succession battles that plague organized crime are a staple of American popular culture Who else has been watching the Sopranos but mobsters conduct their business a bit differently, on democratic rather than dynastic principles. Every two years the “uncles,” senior members of the Wo Shing Society, the oldest triad in Hong Kong, elect an up-and-coming younger boss as their chairman.

I first stated this site with 2 friends but I am the only one now taking care of it. I love movies sometimes that is all I talk about. I love TCM the best station ever. I am studying to be an Infographics/special effect for movies. I will put the best films on my website no exception. It is like I am evolving with it, I am constantly redoing stuff on it. So have fun with it and thank you for visiting.
