The Great Buddha+

Taiwan | 2017 | 104 minutes | Hsin-yao Huang

July 1, 2018

A night security guard of a Buddha statue factory and his friend, a recyclables collector, become entangled in a web of dark secrets after stumbling upon videos that document the promiscuous meetings of the factory's wealthy owner.

一名在佛像工廠值班的夜間警衛,與他撿破爛的換帖兄弟,平時會在警衛室一起看電視聊天。他們有天偷看有錢董事長的行車紀錄器,卻捲入一個情慾橫流的謀殺。
全片大多數以黑白畫面呈現,象徵低端人口「黑白人生」的處境與命運,上層政經人士的荒誕日常,則以彩色畫面為主,藉此批判台灣社會目前物慾橫流情況。
