Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
The film is so complicated that you can understand why a number of Taiwanese magazines published family trees to help viewers follow each character's story, but if you can get to grips with it this is a fascinating history lesson.
Hou turns in a masterpiece of small gestures and massive resonance; once you surrender to its spell, the obscurities vanish.
Beautiful family saga by the great Taiwanese filmmaker Hou Hsiao-hsien.
An ambitiously conceived, sometimes frustratingly elliptical family chronicle that shows one family's experience immediately following the Japanese occupation of the nation.
| Original Score: 4/4
