Robbers have often been portrayed as extraordinary figures with aesthetics and philosophy of crime. They are symbols of freedom and indulgence in the non-real world. Compared with current over-crowding situations, they elude pursuit from polices and hide in the hidden corners while they rob and steal. Excluding the negative value of these acts, such unrestrained thoughts are our dream of thinking. I try to combine comics of Chinese kung fu fictions with circumstances of crime in film, in order to imply aesthetics and philosophy of crime by core thoughts in kung fu. The un-trammels within this reflect the distance between modern complicated life and the imaginative.
