Goodbye South, Goodbye (Hou Hsiao-Hsien, 1996)

Took me a little while, this one, much as I love Hou. I get the way the gangsters-being-ordinary turns into something much nastier, but without pyrotechnics, and some of the camerawork is simply extraordinary, but I can't say I was constantly gripped. Would love to see it in a cinema someday.
