The scene is an unnamed Southeast Asian country, one week after a deadly night club bombing. On Monday morning, the local police chief forces the terrorists he’s captured to “reenact” the events leading up to the attack for his anxious bosses and eager journalists…but the truth is not easy to discern. The film is an indictment not only of the terrorists but also the corruption of the authorities who pursue them. A crisply lensed picture, shot in vertie style by noted cameraman James Lee, is aptly naturalistic, provocative and free from overt editorializing.
