An excellent reproduction of the late 80s Taipei
Overall, the film is an excellent reproduction of the late 80s Taipei strip pass style, the sense of the times is very much in place. Several hotel ladies also bring to life the daily work, life and relationships of the employees.
The main drawbacks are two: firstly, all the dramatic conflicts are in the character of "Su", resulting in the loss of almost all the dramatic tension after the victim is revealed at the end of the first season; secondly, the requirement of the period is the originality, and this film lacks too much in the choice of music.
The first season opened with an excellent eye-catching. Suspense is set up very well, not only to guess the killer, but also to figure out who the victim is. The multi-line narrative flashbacks are interspersed with editing, allowing the main characters to remain suspicious while their images continue to be fleshed out. The plot advances quickly without dragging out the drama, constantly giving clues to keep the audience's attention gripped.
The second season plummeted barely supported. The suspense waned and the man behind the curtain gradually became clear. The biggest drawback of this season is the introduction of too many unnecessary supporting characters, the noise takes away from the main.
The third season characters pale dog tail. The suspense element completely gave way to urban period drama, all the loose ends were abandoned, and even "Ziwei", the only good man, did not even deliver the ending. Bad whitewashing, good blackening, "Luo" this role can be said to be "relatives of the pain of the enemy," and then a CCP-style brain-damaged "righteous" ending, did not understand the screenwriter's What is the idea.
