Martin Scorcese (The Departed, The Wolf of Wall Street) teamed up with Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) and Andrew Loo for A24 Films’ raw new crime drama Revenge of the Green Dragons, a film that takes a look at the reality of the American dream for a group of young Chinese immigrants. If it looks pretty hardcore, you must not have had the fortune of seeing The Departed or the film that inspired it, Infernal Affairs. Trust me when I say, these guys go together like peanut butter and chocolate ice cream.
See for yourself below, plus check out the first two stills from the film.
I think it was brilliant how they juxtaposed Ronald Reagan’s speech fetishizing certain immigrants for being “model minorities”, while showing that crime is not exclusive to one area. Brilliant indeed.
