Emmanuelle in Hong Kong [2002]


Having already endured a film by exploitation filmmaker Dick Lau Tin-Sze, I should have not wasted 87 minutes with Emmanuelle in Hong Kong [2002]. I doubt that Stanley Kubrick would be happy to know Eyes Wide Shut [1999] had influenced this pathetic effort where everyone wears a stupid mask. I went to my Roget's New Millenniumô Thesaurus for help on this review. In an effort to describe my experience with Mr. Lau's first film, I'm going to use the word "abominable" and some of the synonyms I found such as "loathsome, lousy, nasty, nauseating, obnoxious, odious, offensive, repellent, reprehensible, repugnant, repulsive, revolting, rotten, sleazeball, stinking, terrible, very bad, vile, wretched". Thankfully, the DVD had a glitch which saved me from the last eight minutes of the 95 minute running time.
