Critic Reviews for Visage (Face)
Tsai Ming-Liang pays vague tribute to Francois Truffaut throughout this slow, self-indulgent, but often shockingly beautiful art film.
To those of use who know and love his movies, it has a pervasive sense of the familiar... not at all revelatory or exciting. It's a fine movie, if you like this sort of thing (most people don't).
Audience Reviews for Visage (Face)
I probably need to see this again after getting more acquainted with the Salome story. I can say that this is Tsai's most self-reflexive film, like he's channeling Rivette. It's like the flip side of the coin to What Time..., plus plenty of musical numbers(though they have a more concrete context here), and that only describes part of it. The mis en scene is crazy good, definitely his most accomplished thus far. The problem I had was that it felt too disconnected, with too many major characters, and the Amalric and Baye cameos were pretty pointless.
