Finished Tsai Ming-Liang’s The Wayward Cloud

thanks to a south korean porn shop I found it in.

Well worth seeing, probably my favorite Ming-Liang so far. It’s essentially another parable about relationships, but it’s also a rather good film about the strangeness of desire or something like that. I can’t quite put my finger on where it’s all going, but regardless it feels like love and ends with it too. More later when I can actually resolve what I think about this movie. Ming-Liang is definitely the best metaphorical film maker in Asia, even when dabbling in porn it seems more like a discussion of sex than a basking in blatant porn… and the water melon sex scenes are cool
