Synopsis:
Pickle, a night security guard of a Buddha statue factory and his friend Belly Button spends a lot of time together having late night snacks and watching television. One day when the television is broken, their lives are changed forever. At first, they watch the footages recorded on their boss’s dash cam for fun, and soon they get addicted to peeping into the boss’s colorful private life and accidentally discover the boss’s unspeakable secret. In 2017, the film was nominated for numerous titles at the 54th Golden Horse Awards, taking home top honors for Best New Director.

一名在佛像工廠值班的夜間警衛,與他撿破爛的換帖兄弟,平時沒事就會在警衛室一起看電視聊天。他們有天偷看有錢董事長的行車紀錄器,卻莫名捲入一個政商勾結、情慾橫流、驚天動地的超完美謀殺計畫。
全片大多數時間以黑白畫面呈現,象徵低端人口「黑白人生」的處境與命運,上層政經人士的荒誕日常,則以彩色畫面為主,藉此批判台灣社會目前物慾橫流情況。
獲第19屆台北電影節最佳劇情片等5項大獎、第37屆香港電影金像獎最佳兩岸華語電影、第54屆金馬獎最佳新導演、改編劇本等5項大獎
