Chinese director Diao Yinan’s The Wild Goose Lake stylishly delivers as a neo-noir crime thriller about a gangster on the run through the nooks and crannies of densely populated Wuhan in central China.

The film follows the desperate attempts of small-time mob boss Zhou Zenong (Hu Ge) to stay alive after he mistakenly kills a cop and a dead-or-alive reward is put on his head. As his story spins out of control, the married Zhou gets involved in a strange romance with a mysterious young woman (Gwei Lun-mei) who’s out to either help or betray him.

Filled with stylized set pieces and violent shocks, The Wild Goose Lake is a follow-up to director Yinan’s 2014 breakthrough film Black Coal, Thin Ice

The discs and digital edition of the film include the following features:

  • Diao Yinan Behind-the-Scenes Featurette
  • Interview with stars Hu Ge and Gwei Lun Mei
  • Bonus Short Film— The Goddess (Directed by Renkai Tan | United States, China | Chinese with English subtitles| 7 minutes) — A young woman decides to take justice into her own hands after a traumatic assault. Based on a true story.
