Maybe it's not fair to say this South Korean gangster flick (2002) is derivative of Pulp Fiction given Quentin Tarantino's own debt to Asian cinema, but there's a lot about it that induces deja vu: the saturated palette, the framing, the long tracking shots, the antic interludes amid the mayhem. Ryoo Seung-wan's gritty caper concerns two tough women—a thug's chippie and a thief trying to go straight—who join forces to defraud the crooks who've used them as punching bags. But the fight scenes are more visceral than Tarantino's, and a neat series of double-crosses adds to the suspense. In Korean with subtitles. 116 minutes.
