The film's meandering, surrealist-kissed, early scenes dance nicely in time with his urban protagonist's disconnected, existential malaise.
The Wayward Cloud offers one plausible moral: If life hands you watermelons, make love to them.
The Taiwanese sex musical The Way ward Cloud is notable for its bizarre uses of watermelons. I won't give you the details because my editor would just cut them out.
Tsai's emptied-out aesthetic has never felt so empty, his mannerisms so pointlessly mannered.
A witty, insightful and typically idiosyncratic continuation of Tsai's earlier features.
Here the search for water suggests a deeper longing, and our pornstar hero's quest for lost love leads to the floodgates being opened in a shocking climax of liquid release.
Juicy surrealist film.
The Wayward Cloud finds Ming-liang in a rut and unable to elevate his neon wilderness to the heights of the rest of his consistently fascinating oeuvre.
Taiwanese titillation flick featurings watermelon as a metaphor.
A curiously-compelling and impossible to pigeonhole romantic romp which blurs the line between pornography and legit cinema in magnificent fashion.
Features the most explicit use of a watermelon ever filmed.
So extravagantly, hilariously rude as to be almost indescribable.
At first, this is an unfocused musical drama that shoots in every direction to see what sticks, including some unnecessary musical numbers and random scenes that have no purpose, but that until it reaches a striking last scene that is provocative, meaningful and touching.
tsai ming-liang's harshest film. the last scene made me hate everyone
A porn stud romances a shy girl during a drought in Taiwan; four hallucinatory musical numbers describe the character's feelings. A very strange film mixing graphic sex, song and dance production numbers and almost no story development; give the filmmakers credit for trying something different, but it never jells and is dull most of the time. There are a few standout scenes (the opening watermelon sex scene), but like every shot in the movie they go on for far too long and end up diminishing their own impact.
Wow this one is hard to rate.. It's one of the strangest movies I've seen in a long long time! But it's definitely worth watching. Nice camera work, and I liked the long and silent scenes. The sex sort of gets annoying after a while.
What can I tell you about the silly songs? I guess it works, they stay in your head (I'm not sure if you're going to be too thrilled about that), so in a sense you're the one who's providing the soundtrack for the movie :)
I can't wait to see it again!
