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.
courageous, desperate and crazy women (mostly),
and their disappointing, indecisive men.
