Among the most praised and sought-after titles in all contemporary film, this singular masterpiece of Taiwanese cinema tells the true story of a crime that rocked the nation. A film of both sprawling scope and tender intimacy, this novelistic, patiently observed epic centers on the gradual, inexorable fall of a young teenager from innocence to juvenile delinquency, and is set against a simmering backdrop of restless youth, rock and roll, and political turmoil.
(Edward Yang, Taiwan, Mandarin & Taiwanese w/ Eng sub, 237min, 1991, Digital)
