Called by Twitch, “…proof that Hong Kong film…has not lost its ability to reinvent the crime thriller,” Accident (2009) will be out on both standard DVD and Blu-Ray formats on June 12th via Shout! Factory.
Accident, directed by Cheang Soi (Dog Bite Dog, 2006) and produced by Johnnie To on his Milky Way Image imprint, sounds like a mix between gritty Hong Kong thriller and Coppola’s The Conversation:
A self-styled accident choreographer, Brain (Louis Koo) is a professional hit man who kills his victims by trapping them in well crafted accidents that look like unfortunate mishaps but are in fact perfectly staged acts of crime. He is perennially plagued with guilt, as the avalanche of memories of his lost wife does not make things any easier.
Special features on both editions include a “making-of” featurette and the original theatrical trailer.
Accident can be pre-ordered on Amazon here.
