SHEEP WITHOUT A SHEPHERD: Artsploitation Acquires Thrilling Chinese Crime Drama
Artsploitation Films have announced that they have picked up the great crime drama from Chinea, Sheep Without a Shepherd. They're planning a streaming and DVD release of the film on March 23rd.
This debut feature film from Malaysian director Sam Quah was a massive hit in China and a standout at Fantasia last year. I used the words 'thrill-ride' too many times in my review from the festival but I truly meant it.
Sheep Without a Shepherd is an honest to goodness thrill-ride of a crime drama. An -ism like 'thrill-ride' gets tossed around a lot but here we truly mean it. Few directors knock it out of the park their first time around yet on his first time directing a feature film Quah has found a perfect balance of thrills and chills, and rolling emotions.
Here is the announcement, you'll find the trailer down below.
