    夢中人 一分鐘抱緊 接十分鐘的吻

    陌生人 怎麼走進內心 製造這次奮

    A cloud of dread and uncertainty looms above Wong Kar-Wai’s third feature, Chungking Express, an exuberant whirlwind of love and longing bursting with seductive exoticism, set amid a Hong Kong in a perpetual state of flux and apprehension about its identity and future. Released in 1994, a mere three years before the British government would concede the island colony back to the Chinese, the film uneasily sits between Britain’s colonial past and the encroaching influence of mainland China.…

    My Night at Maud's

    ★★★★★

    “The thought of the future needn’t depress us, since we have none.”

    Éric Rohmer’s third of his six moral tales, My Night at Maud’s, concerns a Catholic man, Jean-Louis, who lives life practising a philosophy based on rationalisation and mathematical probability. At church, he falls in love with a beautiful young girl and vows she will be his wife. She is his ideal partner: blonde, pure, and devout. But after a brief encounter with an old schoolmate, Jean-Louis finds himself…

    Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles

    ★★★★★

    Chantal Akerman was a Belgian director whose filmography consisted of experimental narrative films and intimate personal documentaries. For Akerman –– a Jewish woman who was also queer –– identity was always an important dimension of her work. In 1975, Akerman would release her magnum opus, Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles. The film is widely regarded as a masterpiece of feminist and arthouse cinema. The nearly three-and-a-half-hour film follows the lonely housewife Jeanne Dielman, played by French star…

    Paris, Texas

    ★★★★★

    “I wanted to see him so bad that I didn't even dare imagine him anymore.”

    Seemingly birthed from the dust that surrounds him, a man wordlessly emerges from the desert, trudging towards an invisible horizon, his face weary and withered, his memory elusive, his soul haunted by regret and sorrow.

    Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas is a melancholic portrait of a broken man yearning for reconnection with a family whom he had left years ago. But much more so, the film…

    Naked

    ★★★★½

    “You think you can recapture your youth by fucking it. You don't wanna fuck me. You'll catch something cruel.”

    Mike Leigh’s Naked is a riveting parable brimming with a scornful wit and humanity unseen through initial viewing. The film chronicles the exploits of the sardonic and nihilistic vagabond, Johnny, a man who is first introduced as he brutally rapes a young woman in a back alleyway. Fearing the repercussions of his actions, Johnny flees to the streets of London. There,…
