The Eye ★★ Jian Gui 2002 (R)

Stylish Asian ghost story follows the blind-since-childhood Mun (Lee), who receives a cor-neal transplant that restores her sight. Some adjustment is expected, but Mun sees shadowy figures lurking about that no one else sees, accident scenes miles from where they occurred, and, yes, dead people. Mun goes to a shrink, Dr. Wah (Chou), who doesn't think his patient is crazy. Instead, the doctor investigates the cornea donor—and is not reassured to discover the young woman committed suicide. Cantonese, Mandarin, and Thai with subtitles. 98m/C VHS, DVD . HK Sin-Je (Angeli-ca) Lee, Lawrence Chou, Chutcha Rujinanon, Candy Lo; D: Oxide Pang, Danny Pang; W: Oxide Pang, Danny Pang, Jojo Hui; C: Decha Seementa.
