“I think that this film can represent something; it can express a kind of feeling about the middle and lower class, and maybe even Hong Kong as a whole. Everyone can eat at Mcdonald’s or shop at malls. That’s a way of life, but spiritually, there’s satisfaction, especially with families on welfare. They don’t really have any worries about life, but there’s an unspeakable feeling or depression. We’re not trying to explain it, we’re just trying to convey that feeling” (Muse, May 2009, p.19-20).
“Me making a film about a murderer doesn’t mean I’m telling people to commit murder. From my days of studying literature, I learned about liberalism, and it taught you to be an independent observer. Even if the observation is subjective, it should still allow people to reflect on their own, not hold their hands and tell them what to think” (Muse, May 2009, p.20).
