This Buddhist parable would be a must-see if only for the spectacle of Andy Lau performing a striptease in a gargantuan latex muscle suit. But there’s more to this “eccentric, occasionally shocking” (David Bordwell) whatsit than its brilliant sight-gags. Obliterating the boundaries between comedy, horror, kung fu, and romance, Running on Karma delves into the secret past of its exotic-dancer hero, a lapsed monk who harbors the special power of seeing other people’s karmic baggage—including that of the female detective (Cecilia Cheung) he’s falling for. As the wacky tale unfolds, it embraces everything from World War II history and classic Johnnie To police procedural to grand metaphysical themes.
