Hong Kong Night Guide
Hong Kong 1997
Directed by "Jim".


Hilariously crude pseudo documentary about brothels, massage parlours, and naked women. It's a trashy movie version of a trashy, but very successful, magazine which rates all the sex shops in Hong Kong. The founders of the magazine would later be immortalized in the bio-pic NAKED AMBITION (2003), starring Louis Koo and Eason Chan, but for now, the homely Baat Leung-Gam takes us through the paces. Some of the tales are morality plays. In one we are told, "From this story, we are told not to screw from the back, otherwise, you'll be blackmailed easily." Some are political allegory, as when a Chinese sex hero called Chairman takes on a British sex queen called Thatcher (the handover -- this is 1997 -- as sex marathon). But mostly the film just tries to be sleazy, and is remarkably successful.
