“Confession of Pain” is the new, much hyped thriller from dynamic directing duo Andrew Lau and Alan Mak, best known for their work on the “Infernal Affairs” series. Unfortunately, the film has not fared too well at the hands of critics, though arguably this has been down not only to overly high hopes, but to the fact that the film, shrouded in secrecy for most of its production, had a great deal of its plot revealed before release, either through the press or though its cast, with actress Xu Jinglei annoyingly letting slip vital details regarding her character. Thankfully, the film remains highly enjoyable even for viewers forearmed with knowledge of its various twists and turns, and although uneven, it certainly provides enough in the way of thrills, spills and unlikely laughs to grab the attention.
