Director Statement

Firstly, LAS VEGAS is my attempt at understanding the origins of violence. On the other hand, I did not want to merely do a retelling of the real-life case this film is based on but turn it into an escapist love story. I didnā€™t want to make a calculating movie but a warm one ā€“ a dark embrace. One I can cry to without leaving the theater feeling sick.
