—01. Limited one week engagement.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center will be giving Tsai Ming-liang's legendary debut film Rebels of the Neon God its first ever theatrical release in the West next week, and I implore New Yorkers not to miss it. Despite Ming-liang being one of the most celebrated directors in film's history, his work is woefully hard to view in the US. Hopefully this release will begin to change that, as this film about disillusioned Taipei youth is far from his only masterpiece.
