"Incredibly creative... hypnotizing and daring" - Arrow In The Head
Angelica Lee, the award-winning star of The Eye, reunites with identical twin directing team the Pang Brothers for Re-Cycle. The world they create here is vast, filled to the brim with apocalyptic images that flow in a sort of twisted dream logic.
Lee stars as a struggling young writer. When she discards the opening chapter to her latest work, she begins to be plagued with visions and events seemingly lifted from the pages of her rejected work, and it is not long before she is drawn entirely into a strange other world, a nightmarish alternate reality that serves as a repository for everything discarded and forgotten in ours.
It's a good time to be a Pang. Not only do Oxide and Danny have a Hollywood remakes of their international hits The Eye and Bangkok Dangerous in the works, but they're also wrapping up work on their Sam Raimi-produced English-language debut, The Messengers, and Re-Cycle, their most recent Hong Kong film, is fresh off a stint at Cannes. Long hailed as a pair of the most visually talented directors in Asia Re-Cycle may be their most technically accomplished film to date. - Todd Brown
