I've got The River waiting for me at home. Anything else?

your dinner?

mark grout (mark grout), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 14:48 (fifteen years ago) link

Lots of strong coffee, if you hope to stay awake. Sorry but The River bored me to tears.

o. nate (onate), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 14:51 (fifteen years ago) link

i would watch 'the river' first, and then try his others if you like it.

i used this strategy, and haven't seen any more of his films.

Enrique IX: The Mediator (Enrique), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 14:52 (fifteen years ago) link

I've seen The River, Vive l'Amour and What Time Is It There? They're all equally recommendable IMO, though I prefer Vive. What Time is a sequel of sorts to The River.

sleep (sleep), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 14:56 (fifteen years ago) link

Yeah they are all pretty boring though, unless stark realism, near-mute protagonists and relentlessly oppressive bleakness/alienation excite you. They managed to hold my interest. However, each has at least one great sex scene (I use this term loosely in one case), there's some occasional black comedy, and the last 20 minutes of What Time Is It There? makes everything worth it.

Realism?

Eric H. (Eric H.), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 16:04 (fifteen years ago) link

In reality, people spend a lot of time sitting around and staring at the walls - and this movie was very good at capturing that.

o. nate (onate), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 16:28 (fifteen years ago) link

nobody here likes "the hole"??!?

hstencil (hstencil), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 16:30 (fifteen years ago) link

sleep should like his new quasi-porn watermelon-fetish musical I saw last month.

I like Rebels of the Neon God and The River (sort of bookends in the family cycle), but I think What Time Is It There? was a leap forward. Goodbye Dragon Inn almost requires a theater viewing, I think.


Dr Morbius (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 16:30 (fifteen years ago) link

Realism?

sleep's place has unbelievably bad plumbing.

The Hole's OK but I like it least of the family-centered films due to the Dennis Potterlike musical numbers, a trope I thought worked better in the new Wayward Cloud.

Dr Morbius (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 16:39 (fifteen years ago) link

Yeah that sounds fun Morbs.


Realism?

-- Eric H.

Yeah, I mean feel free to define realist cinema and explain why Tsai falls outside that. I've probably misunderstood the term.

sleep (sleep), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 16:53 (fifteen years ago) link

Would What Time Is It There? make sense w/out having seen The River?

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn (Alfred Soto), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 16:59 (fifteen years ago) link

Yes. I watched that first. There's not a significant connection story-wise, just some recurring characters.

sleep (sleep), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 17:06 (fifteen years ago) link

Most of my definitions of realism don't include musical numbers is all I'm saying.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 17:10 (fifteen years ago) link

they are all pretty boring though, unless stark realism [snip]

OK, possibly unclear use of "all", but of course I can only speak for all the ones I've seen, listed in the previous post. None of which have any musical numbers.

sleep (sleep), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 17:20 (fifteen years ago) link

whichever one you start with, i think you'll figure out pretty quickly whether or not he's for you. as people have noted his films are pretty recognizable as such, and while there are different merits to each if you don't fall for the big picture then you'll probably find all of them a big (and possibly infuriating) yawn.

lauren (laurenp), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 18:40 (fifteen years ago) link

Since Alfred is on record as finding Hou arid, I'm not optimistic Tsai will fare well (despite the flood motif).

(re: hou, loved 3 times. 2nd segment dwarfed the other two, really, but the 1st was perfectly done, so sweet. 3rd one i could have done without, probably and unfortunately.)

i think the litmus test for vive l'amour is whether you find the last scene electrifying or so dull you start fidgeting. (i thought it was the former, but i am a huge sucker for that kind of long take)

forgot to post this interview:

RS: Will there be more Walker films? What particular challenges do they pose?

Tsai: I love filming the act of walking, because no preparation is needed. Just a little makeup for Hsiao-kang, and a red monk’s robe. We go to the location I have selected and begin to film. It’s like when a painter goes out to paint a still life. Have you ever heard of a painter planning or conceptualizing anything before going out to paint a still life? He paints what he finds and sees. Because the world is so full of wonders, one can never run out of subjects to paint. Why deliberately worry or challenge myself?

RS: You seem to be interested in public spaces in which lonely strangers can fleetingly intersect—markets, video arcades, movie theaters. Do you see these public spaces disappearing—or people disappearing from them? How do you think the Internet has changed the fumbling for connection that your films depict? Have you thought to try to reflect the change of these rituals in your films?

Tsai: I think that creation and life are inextricable, and beyond this there is nothing else. If a filmmaker isn’t a marketer, then essentially his work is the reflection of life through his own unique spiritual and psychological perspective. I like going to traditional markets because the vegetables sold by farmers are more fresh and tasty, and moreover the experience contains deeper flavors of life. When I was a little boy, I used to go to a market next to a clock tower with my grandmother. In my memory, that clock tower looked gigantic. A while later, when the market disappeared, the tower looked more diminutive than ever. Each time I walked past that tower I felt sorrow. Sometimes reality is so depressing one can barely face it. Those disappeared theaters from the memories of my childhood, when I began traveling the world, I realized they can be found everywhere, in equal states of dilapidation, many of which become cruising spots. I liked to go on my own adventures in these places. It’s so hard to describe the feeling I get in these spaces, like a dream covered in mold. Typical trajectories are not part of my world, or my films, and most definitely not part of my dreams.

And New Wave Film has tweeted they will release Stray Dogs and Journey together on DVD. Can't wait for that package!!!

Finally caught up w/ Journey to the West as part of this tasty double disc set, not on a big screen sadly, but still extraordinary looking - I remember Nakh correctly saying that New Wave's DVD of Unrelated looked like shit, but they've done well by Tsai here - sound, colour, all v. beautiful, there's a shot of a deep red wall that's ravishing, and that's matched to the colour of the red monk robes that are the film's key visual motif. The opening shot of JTTW reminded me strongly of Lynch's Eraserhead - a horizontal face, slowly observed - but here you could study every fissure of Denis Levant's craggy face, his forehead a knot of tension, his eyes dark like blood. Throughout, I was asking myself, how (or how much) is this film directed? Of course, such long takes imply an act of passive observation - the film's epigraph seems to corroborate this - but there's an element of comedy at work too, the walker's slow, inexorable creeping into frame, the way people pay him so little attention, walking round him, stepping out of his way - they literally let him 'be'

"Afternoon is a feature-length experimental film that could be taken as the most complex DVD extra ever made. But for devotees of Tsai and his onscreen alter ego, actor Lee Kang-sheng, the film is hypnotic, even as the perversity of its stasis prompts a viewer to wonder whether it has a trajectory or is simply going where it will.”

http://metrograph.com/edition/article/12/chasing-the-film-spirit


http://i.imgur.com/zkFqjfN.jpg

Since early on, there has been a persistent, mysterious image imprinted in my memory banks: a brilliant carp spirit who has taken on the form of a beautiful woman emerging from a pond, vividly glistening, dazzling and unforgettable. It wasn’t until I got older that I realized this image came from a film—based on an old fable—made in Mainland China in the 1950s called Chasing the Fish Spirit. It depicts a divine encounter between a penurious scholar and the fish spirit in a garden. It was not the first film I ever saw; my grandmother and grandfather were the biggest cinephiles I knew, and we started going to movies together when I was three years old. We would go to the cinema twice a day, everyday. Sometimes we would watch the same film over and over again, and sometimes we would find different cinemas to watch something new. That was a golden age for cinema, and I’m proud my childhood coincided with that time.

When I was 20 years old, I left my hometown of Kuching, Malaysia. That small town had about a dozen cinemas in which I lingered. They were indelible. Years later when I returned for the first time, I found they had all been demolished, except one, which no longer showed film. It had become a market for various knicknacks. I saw very clearly then that I came into this world at a time of unprecedented rapid change. I couldn’t help but feel wistful and melancholy. Later when I began to make films, I started to have a recurring dream about a cinema called the Odeon, and I had it often until I was 40 years old. I didn’t understand it at all. It didn’t occur to me in my everyday thoughts and yet it presented itself to me each night. Perhaps, I thought, it meant that I was getting old?

In 2000, when I made What Time Is It There?, I found an old cinema on the outskirts of Taipei where I wanted to shoot. The feeling of being there had a flavor of death and fecundity, as though I were meeting an old lost friend. Afterwards, I chose this dilapidated old theater—perpetually on the verge of bankruptcy—as the venue for my premiere. It was a dark and stormy night, but the theater was packed. The next day the theater manager called to ask if I would enter into a partnership with him. Of course I turned down this terrible business proposal. He said to me, “Then I have no option but to close the cinema.” I responded, “Wait a minute, okay, rent it to me for one year.” During the subsequent year, I made Goodbye, Dragon Inn.

Nowadays everyone watches movies on planes. On any given flight, no matter the airline, you can choose from hundreds of films: Hollywood, Bollywood, all different types of movies. However, you can count on one thing: you’ll never find a Tsai Ming-liang picture on a plane, as I make films that have to be seen on the big screen. If this were not the case, people watching a film of mine on a plane might be confounded into thinking the small screen on the seat in front of them was broken.
