Inner Senses (2002, HGK) C-100m. *** D: Law Chi-Leung. Starring Leslie Cheung, Karena Lam (=Lam Kar Yan), Maggie Poon, Waise Lee, Valerie Chow. Uneven but well-made mix between ghost story and romantic drama about psychiatrist Cheung, whose latest patient Lam is complaining about two ghosts that roam her apartment. In a chilling twist, the tables are later turned on the unbelieving therapist. The melodramatic, heart-felt finale makes the movie. Even more chilling when you consider that Cheung (A BETTER TOMORROW, A CHINESE GHOST STORY) committed suicide by jumping off a building a year after this movie premiered. Excellent score by Peter Kam.
