A Brighter Summer Day

A Brighter Summer Day

Finished Yang 's full filmography (mostly on YT, check the links in the ranking) and what a way to conclude it, even if I've settled That Day on the Beach being his finest, A Brighter Summer Day requires so much to be fully appreciated which is mostly a good thing- but not finding its bug lacks a certain shape and it peaks sporadically (think, Ming looking right into the camera to contrast the rivalry with the 217s or the nostalgically memoir-ish midnight kiss) but it needs at least one more watch for me to fully sit down and analyze it.

One of my favorite filmmakers and this is one of his best. Brilliant stuff
