courageous, desperate and crazy women (mostly),
and their disappointing, indecisive men.
These films and shows have given me pleasure, shock, laughters, tears, many complicated feelings I'm not able to put into words, different/new ways to view and understand love, life, people, nature, the world and myself. Perhaps you'd enjoy them more if you're a girl or my twin sister (figuratively, of course).
My favourite topics/genres: documentaries, independent, classics, world/ethnic, road/travel, biographical, political, historical/period, psychological, feminist, LGBTQQAI-themed, romance/erotic, music/musical/dance, (black) comedy, sci-fi...
An interesting & beautiful story, secretive & desperate love, self-destructive protagonist(s), great soundtrack... equals time well spent. But the shocking/sadistic ones always stay longer, haunting you till the end...
Mainland/PRC: Zhangke Jia,
HK: Kar Wai Wong, Stanley Kwan, etc.
TW: Ang Lee, Hsiao-hsien Hou, Edward Yang, Ming-liang Tsai, etc.
