Headlines
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Heung Laap Hang.


The story of three reporters at one newspaper and the stories that they break. The new guy (Daniel Wu) writes a successful story about poor orphans, the top reporter (Maggie Cheung Ho-Yi) gets close with a young triad punk to get the inside scoop, and the veteran (Emil Chow) covers a diamond show which in past years has had several thefts occur. Though the three are together occasionally, for the most part each story is self contained. Surprisingly for an ensemble film like this, I found all three stories to be engaging, with all the principal characters delivering fine performances.
