A-Cui is a middle-aged taxi driver whose soft and rather meek personality subjects him to all forms of exploitation. He has a low social status and even his own teenage son doesn’t have any respect for him. One day, A-Cui has a strange passenger: a teenager out for revenge and he gets entangled in a criminal act against his will. On that day, after discovering photos of his wife with another men, A-Cui decides to stand up for himself.

暴好人

計程車司機阿強是逆來順受的老好人,在外頭或家裡都被人騎在頭上。他開車載到尋仇少年,不但沒有機警脫身,還被少年逼著幫忙拍下打人畫面;在家,他的事業成就比不過貌合神離的美麗妻子,連兒子都對他頤指氣使。但看著徵信社拍的照片裡,一疊嬌妻與男人親密互動的照片,阿強決定今晚要為自己討回公道。但正當阿強付諸行動之際,命運卻對他開了一個大玩笑。

《暴好人》(2018)是台灣公共電視「新創電影」系列的短片,這個系列旨在結合電影類型,開發具有在地特色的原創題材。《暴好人》的故事元素來自近年社會時事,以及導演自身在台灣都市空間中的生活經驗。本片結合懸疑驚悚電影的視覺語言,將故事限縮於發生在24小時內的事件,巧妙安排許多看似瑣碎的生活小事,堆疊、翻轉劇情,並透過打光與構圖,快速營造驚悚氛圍,將故事帶往高潮,卻又瞬間急轉直下。(資料出處:臺灣國家電影中心工具箱)
