In his directorial debut, Francis Ng Chun-Yu essays Smash Head, an emotionally bankrupt cop who began his downward spiral when he accidentally killed a hostage during a shootout. Though it has its rough edges, Hong Kong actor Francis Ng's directorial debut is a striking work: very much performance based and with a distinctively woozy feel that parallels the main character's feeling of dislocation from his surroundings.
