A Brighter Summer Day ★★★★★

An epic spanning politics, art, social dynamics and our own collective psyche. What happens when our righteousness comes into conflict with society? In this film, we observe the different possible responses, from creativity to savagery. A pastoral story set in a city, a bildungsroman with no absolution, a Taiwanese film invaded by the West - this film produces comedy and tragedy by projecting our own miniature rebellions.
