Nowhere to Hide
Written and directed by Lee Myung-Se
A Lions Gate release
Opens December 22

Korean director Lee Myung-Se's genre-despoiling policier Nowhere to Hide opens with a smear of boldly abstracted slapstick violence, segues into a confidently ridiculous assassination sequence scored to the Bee Gees' "Holiday," then catapults itself into a mockingly inconsequential nonnarrative in which brawls morph abruptly into shadow plays or waltzes or oil paintings. Lee's trickery is dazzling in flashes but also monotonously strenuous—the derangement factor is high but there's little evidence of authentic lunacy.
