MILLENNIUM MAMBO (2001) 4 stars

Definitive Hou Hsiao-hsien. It’s perceptive filmmaking on Taiwanese youth. The central female protagonist lingers long after the film ends. It's a compelling and haunting character study - bittersweet and nostalgic. What is it about Taiwanese filmmaking? Outstanding stuff.
