    TIME AND TIDE (2001) by Tsui Hark
    This Hong Kong gangster film is quite complicated in plot, but visually quite striking.

    Tyler gets a woman pregnant who doesn't want anything to do with him, despite his best efforts. He takes a job as a bodyguard. Meanwhile, Jack is a former gangster trying to run away from his past. His wife doesn't know anything about his former life where his gang tried to rub him out. Because they tried to betray him, Jack takes their money and they come after him in Hong Kong.

    The two stories dovetail together. The final sequence with Tyler delivering Jack's wife's baby is remarkable.
    Analyze the use of the camera to tell this story. The camera is all over the place and it helps tell the story in a remarkable way. Explain sequences you liked and why. What makes this gangster film unique?
