Elsewhere

This Kuala Lumpur crime syndicate made up of cabbies will have you looking over your shoulder next time you’re dropped home. Working a lucrative racket, the crew are given a heads-up on wealthy passengers arriving at the airport and take detailed notes on their fares, figuring out later which information and threats can best extort cash out of them. Led by Tailo (Sunny Pang), they’re on to a good thing until police start to take an interest and some of the gang grow reckless and greedy. Chaos is accelerated when Ah Wai (Fabian Loo) bites off more than he can chew on a side hustle and draws the ire of a criminally connected casino owner (a rivetingly over-the-top Frederick Lee). Their once-cruisy capers are now at risk of turning into a flaming wreck.

“A bloody, vivid, polished crime thriller with style to burn and a grim, fatalistic heart, and which adheres to its genre conventions while managing to make them seem fresh and unpredictable… Above all, it feels like there are actual emotional stakes involved as a secondary narrative about a family on the verge of collapse emerges amid the violent clutter.” — Elizabeth Kerr, Hollywood Reporter
