Critic Reviews for Goodbye South, Goodbye
Hou brilliantly evokes the isolation of a generation hopelessly cut off from its past.
What's most impressive about Goodbye South Goodbye is the way in which the film seems so completely disenchanted with the antics of its protagonists.
Audience Reviews for Goodbye South, Goodbye
Illuminated Taiwan and its urban underclass, mingling, scheming, struggling, scamming. Long, continuous takes add a beautiful rhythm to the film, one of Hou Hsiao-Hsien's best.
(*** 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] Interesting throughout. Another winner from Hou Hsiao-Hsien.
Not one of Hou's best films, but still a solid outing. This was also more stylistically varied than most of his other films, with many long tracking shots including emphasized POV shots. The story is kind of like a more bleak Millennium Mambo combined with Imamura's Pigs and Battleships (there's even a pig deal scandal subplot) . The Fox Lorber dvd looks like a VHS quality-wise.
