“Played with boisterous charm…naughty flourishes.”

“Includes no on-screen sex, and not even any nudity…what happens just off camera is much bawdier.”
—Mark Jenkins, NPR

Leave it to Hong Kong’s most iconoclastic new comedy director to make a film hilariously raunchy enough to live up to its title. Framed by a soft-core filmmaker’s ribald off-color Q&A session at a film school, VULGARIA proceeds to flashback its way into a story that lampoons money-laundering gangsters, bestiality, casting couch etiquette, and the entire film production process itself when a producer desperate to raise cash for alimony goes into business with a mobster with a unique sexual preference. In Cantonese and Mandarin with English subtitles. 35mm widescreen. (BS)
