Tsai Ming-liang returns with this latest entry in his Walker series, in which his monk acquires an unexpected acolyte in the form of Denis Lavant as he makes his way through the streets of a sun-dappled Marseille.
Vasiliy Lébedev was a young peasant from Crimea who decided to go to Siberia to work in a coal mine. With his sense of opportunity, his lack of scruples and taking advantage of the end of Perestroika, he quickly landed a position at the helm of one of the most important Power Plants in Siberia. After the fall of the old USSR-and thanks to his own cunning-he became the sole owner of the Power Plant and of one of the largest coal deposits in Russia, amassing an immense fortune. An introverted character and lover of the paranormal sciences, he travelled constantly, obsessed with finding clues about the existence of "UFOs" and portals to the "beyond".

This movie is very interesting to watch, I enjoyed every minute of it. Most of what's happening on the screen doesn't make sense, but it didn't bother me really. There isn't much of a plot. In short, there is a desolated factory where something is "guarded" by a 60-something guy with his strange daily routine. And then there are 3 telepathic dwarfs sent there to steal that thing. Thru the whole movie they do some weird preparations and finally in the end do it, or so it should be anyway.
Still giving it a 8 and not 10 because the ending was unexpected and left me puzzled. What was this all about? But definitely this movie has stuff which I haven't seen in any other movie, and it feels very fresh, even innovative.
