Filmfest DC - The Bold, The Corrupt and The Beautiful

Saturday, April 28 At Landmark's E Street Cinema

The Bold, the Corrupt and the Beautiful 

Yang Ya-Che

Taiwan, 2017, 112 minutes

A clever riff on the gangster melodrama, The Bold, the Corrupt, and the Beautiful tells an outrageously labyrinthine tale of power, corruption, and lies pivoting on a ruthless matriarch and the daughters for whom she is ostensibly gaining all her wealth. Madame Tang (Golden Horse best actress Kara Wai) is a shameless profiteer, exploiting illegal land speculation laws, playing political games, and waging psychological warfare among her peers. An investigation into a car accident that killed one of Tang’s enemies and left his daughter in a coma soon morphs into a murder case that eventually brushes up against Tang’s illegal dealings. Maternity and morality are unrecognizably distorted and family cohesion starts to unravel. Buoyed by a triumvirate of stellar performances, the filmproves to be a wonderfully lurid, soapy reckoning as gifts are never given from the heart and advice is never dealt out without an ulterior motive.—Various sources

In Mandarin with English subtitles
