    Was a bit too slow for my taste, but I’m eager to go through Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s filmography nevertheless.

    SXSW 2017 #9 - This film is FUCKED UP. Do you know the feeling of clenching your butt and holding your breath because you're so nervous? THAT'S THIS MOVIE FOR 45 MINUTES. The buildup is incredibly intense, and the film is basically an exercise in suspense and teasing everything until the last minute. But it's also a cathartic experience and has a wonderful payoff. Go into this blind, don't read anything about it. The trailer, poster, and synopsis are vague for a reason.
