Rebels of the Neon God

Rebels of the Neon God ★★★★★

This film is the beginnng of Tsai’s crack into the film world. It is delicate, realistic and beautiful. This portrait of youth is a genuine energy that transcends time and space. The soundtrack, containing different variations of the same song, adds to the atmosphere. To watch this film is almost like watching a pilot, informing all the films he made after this one. (Although we live in a speed demon society) if you can slow down your attention span and allow yourself to enjoy this film, there is great joys to be had. Watch his second film Vive L’amour after. Both on streaming service Kanopy.
