(Midi Z, cast and crew before the world premiere of Nina Wu, © Lindsay Bellinger 2019)  By LINDSAY R. BELLINGER Nina Wu is an interesting film that hits a hard punch, and it's clear that Midi Z has enjoyed his share of Quentin Tarantino films in addition to other filmmaking greats. It made its world premiere in the Un Certain Regard section today. It's no surprise to this film journalist that QT showed up for this screening. This is the kind of film that one might thin...
