Rebels of the Neon God
Tsai Ming-liang / TW, 1992 / 106 min.
Taipei, the early 1990s. The economies of Southeast Asia are booming, but it hardly seems to trigger the young. They hang around, without any goals or ambitions. Tsai Ming-liang’s first full-length feature film is a sketch of a friendship between two boys in a metropolis. Motorbikes, video games and girls are the ingredients of this film, underscored by atmospheric guitar music.
