"Good Men, Good Women"
Directed by Hou Hsiao-hsien
In this brilliant,
deeply human portrayal of important chapters in Taiwan's history, an actress
looks back upon her past relationship with a gangster while simultaneously
immersing herself in the role of a Japanese resistance fighter. "Hou's
formal control in this film is stunning, and his vision of history through
the lens of a spiritually depressed present is deeply moving" (Kent Jones,
Film Society of Lincoln Center). Mandarin with English subtitles. 108 minutes.
