Hyperreal Hotel: The Cat at Hotel Vegas
HYPERREAL FILM CLUB IS BRINGIN’ THE CINEMA TO HOTEL VEGAS!!
Do you like beautiful stacks of books? Mullet baddie laughs? Goopy, pulsing creature effects? How about a cat vs. dog fight that lasts nearly as long as the fight from They Live?
After the commercial failure of Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky, Lam Ngai Kai returned to direct one final mindfuck. 1992´s The Cat finds us catching up with famous adventure novelist Wisely (Waise Lee, A Better Tomorrow), previously played by Chow Yun Fat in Kai´s 1987 actioner The Seventh Curse.
This sentimental sendoff features all the fever dream Lam Ngai Kai moments you love, plus Chekhov´s vodka, Vertigo worship, and positively Lisa Frank glitter travel. With all the magic and whimsy of a Murakami horror story, The Cat is phantasmagorical to the max.
