Exiled
2006
 
Set in 1998 in the former Portuguese colony of Macao, this stylish thriller from Johnny To blends spaghetti Western conventions with Hong Kong-style bullet ballets in a story about the long reach of the mob. When two hit men appear at the house of a former colleague, they encounter two ex-associates who've been sent to kill them. A shoot-out ensues -- and then the old pals sit down to dinner. Rest assured that's not the end of it.

Foreign with subtitles. Beautifully directed, with a sense of humor yet plenty of action and story to support it. Reminded me a bit of The Limits of Control, in the way the director used silence and expressions.
