Millennium Mambo ★★★★½

“She broke up with Hao-hao, but he always tracked her down. Called her... begged her to come back... again and again.”

Fell in love with this the second it began! Kicking off with one of the best opening scenes ever; a scene that wonderfully introduces us to Hou’s poignant chronicle of youth. It’s a beautifully shot & sublime film that moves at a hypnotic rhythm, and is easily Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s crowning achievement.
