老笠 (Robbery) (Blu-ray release 2016-6-8) is a Hong Kong cult movie.  A man, having no money to spend with friends, takes a job at a convenience store.  One by one more characters show up, many of which are crazy in some ways, leading to violence.  Through the series of crazy events we are told the theme of this movie: “This city is f___ing stuck!”  It illustrates the many kinds of pressure Hong Kong people face, and refers to actual news events.  I think the ending is very odd though, adding explanations that are not necessary and it is not coherent with the movie.  Anyway, this is going to be one of the most special Hong Kong movies in this year.
