Storyline

This is a collection of three films by emerging Taiwanese directors all revolving around the theme of strong, young women involved in mayhem of some sort. In all of them the theme of alienation within the crowded streets of Taiwan runs strong. "Queen of the Bench" (Yao-Ting Wen dir.) Li Li is an extra who longs for her big break as an actress. In the meantime she spends much of her time shoplifting and trying to find creative ways to break into the big time. After pestering a director and ambushing him in the parking lot to get a part, she gets the call and shows up ready to be a star. Will this really be her chance or is she being exploited? "My Own Personal Gun" (Jing-Jie Lin dir.) Ah-Tsai is wasting her life with drugs, hanging out with losers and small time crooks. One day she passes out in front of a young cop who falls for her in a big way. He makes excuses to run into her and she doctors his drink. He wakes up to find she has stolen his gun and she leads him on a wild goos ... Written by Fred Cabral <ftcabral@hotmail.com>

good look at big city life
21 April 2000 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

All three of these films deal with alienation from a large faceless society in some fashion. Whether its mistaking the motives of a neighbor through ignorance or living on the edge of oblivion in reaction to an uncaring world, all of these women seem to suffer from a lack of emotional contact to others. I think these films are a fascinating look at a place most westerners have never seen and know little about (at least here in America). These film-makers are relatively new but hopefully we will see a lot more of the in the future.
