When small-time mob leader Zhou Zenong (Chinese superstar Hu Ge) accidentally kills a cop, a dead-or-alive bounty is placed on his head, forcing him on the lam from both the police as well as dangerous gangsters out for the reward. Hiding out in China’s densely populated (and deeply divided) Wuhan province, Zhou becomes entangled with a beautiful, enigmatic woman, who has mysterious intentions of her own. The Wild Goose Lake features gorgeous, neon-drenched cinematography (shot by Dong Jinsong, who also shot the equally gorgeous Long Day's Journey into Night) and bursts of shocking, expertly choreographed action.
