  • Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Super Citizen

    Though Wan Jen doesn't have Edward Yang's style, his is a much finer film about big city malaise than the more famous Taipei Story from the same year. Not so concerned about being a Serious Art Film - even if it has a rather Antonionian ending - and so not the slog I suppose one must feel good about oneself for having endured that Taipei Story is. It also helps to have actual characters.
