  1. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Flowers of Taipei: Taiwan New Cinema

    The usual talking heads-film clips thing, only makes the odd decision to not interview anyone involved in the "Taiwan New Cinema" save some parting words from Tsai Ming-liang and Hou Hsiao-hsien. Instead there's the worldwide fans with generally banal observations. I'd prefer interviews with the players and more emphasis on the movement's history and the less-known directors - Hou and Yang come up an awful lot.

  3. Liviu Cozma's rating of the film Flowers of Taipei: Taiwan New Cinema

    A doc made out of love for a movement that gave us the likes of Hou Hsiao-hsien and Edward Yang. It's a pleasure to see filmmakers like Zhangke Jia, a passionate Wang Bing, Tsai, Weerasethakul, Koreeda, Kyioshi Kurosawa or Assayas among others voicing their appreciation for the profoundly humane cinema of these giants.
