Review:

The first feature film from Taiwanese director Tsai Ming-Liang, Rebels of the Neon God has more conventional "action" than most of this director's films, yet still features his unique cinematic style. A pair of petty hoodlums rob payphones and play video games at an arcade; one of them flirts with a girl who works at a roller rink. While taking her home on his motorcycle, the hoodlum smashes the side mirror of a taxi--which may be what inspires the taxi driver's son, a student who has just quit school, to follow the hoodlum around in pursuit of revenge. Rebels of the Neon God is told through a series of beautifully composed tableaux; the camera rarely moves, and most scenes are a single sustained shot. Yet the movie's measured pace and subdued but compelling visuals become strangely mesmerizing, as in the director's other films (Vive L'Amour, The Hole). --Bret Fetzer
